The Irish government has approved a ban on new evictions, which will last until March. This has left property owners threatening to take legal action. The eviction ban will not extend to tenants who refuse to pay rent or misuse property, furthermore, existing notices to quit will still be enforceable. Due to the energy crisis and other economical struggles landlords are leaving the sector, however, this ban is hinting to leave them in financial stress. . Support services were “maxed out” and people were falling into homelessness. The eviction ban was “the least worst option”, Mcafferty said.
Will this ban be beneficial for rates of homelessness this winter?
