Presentation to the Oireachtas Committee on Housing on Short Term Lets
On 21st June 2017 Peter McVerry Trust presented to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government on the impact of short term lets have on the housing and rental system.
Peter McVerry Trust raised concerns about the impact that the rapid growth in short term letting has had on the private rental market in particular. the charity also raised concerns with regards to the absence of appropriate planning enforcement measures and the need to prevent short term lettings drive up prices and making it harder for people to find homes.
