'Rent controls are working': Housing minister believes rate of rising rents will moderate

The minister said RPZ rules will never bring 4% rate rise across the board.

While Finance and Public Expenditure Minister Paschal Donohoe said “the high cost of renting is a key concern for this government” the Budget contains little in terms of the rental sector.

Rent Pressure Zone (RPZ) laws were first introduced in December 2016 by then-Housing Minister Simon Coveney in order to tackle spiralling rents.

However, in July, new research from the RTB reported that two-in-five tenants in RPZs still face rates of increases above 4% despite caps.

Murphy said today that he is “putting the money behind” the new Residental Tenancies legislation, to ensure that it can be enforced.

In terms of rent inflation, “quarter to quarter, you seen that rate of increase moderate, and we think it will moderate further. But we have to recognise as well, that it’ll never come down to a pure 4%”.

Murphy said he believed a percentage of 4% across the board will not be achieved due the increase in supply, “which does push the number above four percent”, he said.

He’s so useless. 🙄 Ah that's fine so u muppett I actually can't criticise Eoghan Murphy anymore. It's unfair to discriminate against someone who clearly can't understand the function of what they are doing The only way to describe MurphyEoghan is that he is either the best fisherman ever who is taking the piss out of people while pissing himself laughing or that he is quite possibly the biggest clueless nonce this country has ever known

I believed he would be sacked last year but hey that’s belief for you. Sometimes it’s wishful thinking It should be scrapped. There not another industry in the country where the government tell you that you cannot get as much as possible for your product. And the state is still not building houses for needy Irish people. Plenty of money available to renovate hotels for immigrants. Murphy will be remembered as the Minister for no Housing.

Rent control is a tax on landlord caused by civil service and politicians not doing the right thing by simply getting more homes built .very easy to get done but the can’t work it out 👍👍 Average rents in my area have more than doubled in the past few years, but you do you. Is this click bait? Rent controls are NOT working.

It’s the way he tells them! The Minister is right. Rents will moderate but only if the status quo is maintained. If more and more legislation is passed as is the want of Threshold. Landlords will flee the market. The answer is to enforce the multiplicity of laws that are currently there, not introduce more

More spin But the housing minister is about as dumb as a bucket of shrimp You are a blatant liar Murphy, fg have stymied the rental market and until rents are reduced by a third, nothing is working. Common Sense: Rent controls NEVER work. EVER. Over the intermediate and long term, rent controls stifle housing supply, which increases selling prices, thereby reducing housing affordability. Ireland excels at creating and applying really stupid housing policy.

What an idiot can you even belive this guy theres a crisis and this is what he comes out with

He was probably right That’s 100% what rent allowance is 🤦🏻‍♂️ This'll bring the racist accounts out of the woodwork for sure

Here's how the government plans to tackle homelessness, housing issues and high rentsFianna Fáil said the government’s response to the housing crisis has been “completely ineffective”. They're planning to tackle it? They have no plan on tackling the problem, utter nonsense to suggest otherwise
