Short update to Saturday’s Statement on the issues affecting the rental sector in relation to Covid-19
(Update to statement of Saturday, March 14/2020)
Minister Murphy has been conducting a series of engagements with relevant stakeholders including tenant and landlord associations. The matter has also been discussed with Minister Donohoe and been brought before members of the Covid 19 cabinet committee sub-group.
“We know additional protections for renters during this period are necessary,” Minister Murphy said. “We are considering what additional supports and protections will be required for renters, beyond the income supports already agreed with the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. Work is continuing to bring these matters to a conclusion as soon as possible.”
