Ireland has the lowest level of flat dwelling of any country in the European Union, according to research published today.
The Eurostat housing report, which dates from 2009, shows just 3.7 per cent of people in Ireland live in flats or apartments, compared to an EU average of 42 per cent.
In Ireland, 39.1 per cent of people live in detached houses, 57.6 per cent live in semi-detached or terraced houses and 3.1 per cent are in flats or apartments.
Ireland also has one of the lowest overcrowding rates in the EU, with 3.7 per cent, compared to an average of 17.8 per cent.
The research also shows that 13 per cent homes in Ireland are damp, below the EU average of 16 per cent. Some 5.6 per cent of people regard their accommodation as too dark, 0.3 per cent have no toilet and 0.6 per cent have no shower or bath.
Over the 27 EU countries, some 42 per cent of the population lived in a flat or apartments, 34 per cent in a detached house and 23 per cent in a semi-detached or terraced house.

Property Management and Lettings legislation

We would be very interessted in knowing which of the political parties support giving effect to the NPRSA and allowing it to properly regulate the property letting and management industry

Property Services (Regulation) Bill 2009

We were unhappy to read that the above named bill may not become legislation before the finish of the existing dail term. In our estimation this is important legislation required to regulate the property management and lettings business in the state. For far too long there have been rogue property managers and letting agents who act in an improper manner towards their clients whether they be landlords or tenants. Such property agents have given those who act in good faith a bad name in the eyes of the general public. Proper legislation such as this should weed out such practices in the Letting and Management business bringing with it proper provision for academic qualifications for all members of this profession.  The following exerpt was taken from the Irish Times property section 6th January 2011. “PLANS to regulate the property industry, promised for the past five years, as well as the setting up of a national house price register, may collapse in the next two months. However, management agents will remain unlicensed if the Property Services Bill is not passed. If the bill does not make it across the finish line before an election, plans to license and regulates auctioneers, letting agents and management agents will fall. The role of the Property Services Regulatory Authority (PSRA) – a body set up five years ago but which will have no teeth until the Bill is passed – will be called into question.”
