Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, peace of mind is paramount when you are renting a property. There’s a lot of trust involved: a landlord is letting their property to a stranger, while the tenant is putting their trust in a stranger to provide them with a home.

A letting agent can be the intermediary who takes a lot of the hassle out of the process. If you own a property, you won’t have to deal with the stress of vetting tenants and you can rely on the fact that an established letting agent will have access to professional and reliable tenants. For discerning landlords, we have a database of suitable tenants who are looking for specific types of accommodation.

For anyone considering selling a house, one of the very first things that you will have to do is to get a BER (Building Energy Rating) Certificate before you can even think about selling. It’s not just second-hand homes either – all first-time homes and even rental properties must come with a completed BER.

At its basic level, the BER does what it says on the tin. It’s a measure of how efficient your building is when it comes to energy performance. The best rating is an A and it goes all the way down to a G. An A-rated property is deemed to be extremely efficient when it comes to energy and will have far lower energy bills than a G-rated property. It’s much like the labels you might see on your fridge or washing machine at home if you’ve bought in the last five years.

The property market in Ireland has changed momentously over the last 60 years and what is important to apprehend is that the property market is intrinsically correlated with the wider economy.

T.K. Whitaker released the seminal paper ‘Economic Development’ in 1958 – and with it came a seismic change in economic policy. Indeed, many economists credit Whitaker with starting the process that allowed Ireland to join the EEC (now the EU) in 1973 and the Single European Market in 1973.
