A Dublin estate agent had over 1,200 applications for one home.

Asked if he agreed with President Michael d Higgins suggestion that the housing crisis is now a “disaster” he said: “Yeah, absolutely.”“I heard it described a few months as a humanitarian crisis,” he said. “It is beginning to feel like that.”“A lot of the places are rent controlled with the rent caps, so the rents are not necessarily crazy high everywhere for every property – but we have a place there and I think we had 1,200 applications.

“The knock-on of that is, while the rent is low, you can only rent it to one person and then you have got 1,999 disappointed people.“When we’re doing the lettings and it comes to that, we need to operate a lottery system, which is unfair as well. You meet a lot of people who are desperate.”
