Rentals

  • Moving from abroad:

    Rental accommodation in Ireland comes in many different forms including houses, flats and apartments.

    The rights of tenants in Ireland do not include as much security of tenure as in other countries  and it would be wise to research this before renting. Before coming to work in Ireland you should apply for a Personal Public Service Number (PPSN) as all landlords will require this information.

     

  • Minimum standards for rented housing:

    Regulations require that the landlord is to maintain the property in a sound state inside and out.

    More information on the above is available at:

    What are the reasons behind your household bills being so high?

    1. Check that your bills are actual and not estimated.

    2.  If the bill is actual it might be a good idea to install an energy monitor which   will help to analyse the power usage of various appliances.

    3. Check which type of plan you are on. Typically customers who sign up to pay by direct debit and sign up to on-line billing receive discounts from the energy supplier.

    4. Are you still receiving discounts? Sometimes an introductory energy plan discount that you had availed of may have ended. Be sure to check out all available price plans.
