Threshold Call For Better Protection For Tenants In The Wake Of Leeside Apartments Debacle
Cork renters are not reporting issues with substandard accommodation for fear of being evicted
Cork Housing Charity Threshold is calling for a legal definition around what constitutes substantial refurbishment to a property.
The call comes as its revealed Cork renters are not reporting issues with substandard accommodation for fear of being evicted.
In November, tenants of the Leeside Apartment complex here in the city were served with a 'notice to quit' by their landlord, who claimed they needed to vacate the property for refurbishment works.
It's gained national attention with calls being made in the Dáil for an elimination of the so called 'eviction loophole' which allows landlords to evict tenants if refurbishment works need to be carried out.
Speaking to RedFM News Threshold's Edel Conlon says the onus should be put on landlords to ensure tenants are accommodated elsewhere while such works are conducted
