IPOA Withdraws Advice on Passing Household Charge on to Tenants

Earlier this week – the  Irish Property Owners Association – (IPOA)   advised all landlords  to  levy the new Household Charge on their tenants.

After intervention by  the Competition Authority, the IPOA have changed their stance – and now say it is up to each individual  landlord  to make their own decision on the new Household Charge  .  They say that “the relationship of landlord and tenant is a matter of contract between the parties and it is for the parties to any letting agreement to agree between themselves its terms, including the settlement of any charges levied to fund local services.”

Maybe they were a bit hasty with that original statement?
