The landlord’s register, which will be rented in the short term and is under the supervision of Fáilte Ireland, will be set up by the end of this year.
A spokesman for Housing Minister Darag O’Brien said work is already underway to introduce a new system to regulate short-term rentals (STR) and vacation rentals.
“It is based on the best international practices and aims to ensure the availability of long-term residential accommodation that is balanced with the needs of the tourism sector,” she said.
“Funds were allocated to Filete, Ireland, which was tasked with designing and implementing a new short-term rental registration system in budget 2022. The agency is currently looking for staff to work on the project.
“The Ministry of Tourism is also investigating the legislative provisions needed to support the new registration system, with these provisions enacted in 2022 in mind.”
The government has promised to implement a new registration system as part of the “Housing for All Plan” published last September.
This represents a strategy to increase housing supply to an average of 33,000 units annually over the next 10 years.
In connection with the 2019 law regulating short-term leasing in rental pressure zones, a spokesman for Minister O’Brien said “significant work” on the implementation and enforcement of the regulation was carried out by planning authorities.
Comments came later Irish Independent Interview with Airbnb’s General Manager of the Amanda Cup Pulls in Northern Europe. She said she knew there was a “problem” in both her company and Ireland.
She called for further government reforms to ban unregistered real estate owners from the platform and allow legislation that would allow only pre-approved hosts to rent out their accommodation.
The company has received a lot of criticism, especially about withdrawing homes in the rental pressure zone from the rental market.
Ireland adopted new rental regulations in 2019 to crack down on short-term listing cash-in practices, but many say they aren’t advanced enough.
The Irish Self-Cooking Federation (ISCF), which represents owners of more than 4,500 real estate primarily in rural areas, said Fáilte Ireland was “willing” to oversee the registration of STR.
Chair Máireni Mhurchú said he is seeking registration from 2017.
In collaboration with the European Villa Association (EHHA), we recently called on the EU Commission to publish a law on STRs that expires by the end of this month.
ISCF has already sent the asset details of all members to Fáilte Ireland because they are all registered with the organization.
“The Portuguese registry is 98% accepted and their tourism sector is currently booming,” she said.
Travel writer Michelle Walsh Jackson said he hopes to return to a more “organic hospitality” model. “I’m not a fan of Airbnb. I think companies like them are ruining the unique B & B model we had,” she said.
“But I don’t blame the landlord for converting the rental property to Airbnbs because it has greater profits.” She said that much of the responsibility for the current crisis is in vulture funding plans for rent. They believe they are, “more dangerous and knock out future buyers from the market to buy a home,” he said.
