New Bill Proposes Ban On Landlords Seeking Large Upfront Payments

Cabinet Ministers will discuss new laws to ban landlords from charging large upfront payments to secure accommodation.

The bill will also give students the option to pay for campus accommodation in monthly instalments rather than lump sums.
The emergency ban on evictions and rent increases will be extended until December, for those who make a declaration that they are financially hit by COVID or in arrears as a result of virus-related problems.
A separate bill will allow City and County Councils to extend the life of their existing development plans or granted planning permissions by 12 months.
It's also understood Tánaiste Leo Varadkar will seek cabinet approval today for legislation to give all workers the right to paid sick leave.
