In a report published by Daft.ie, it has been revealed that rent is now higher than it has ever been, surpassing rent prices during the economic boom in the 1990s and early 2000s. This has prompted concern for students as they may struggle to find a house which they can feasibly afford. One student shared her accommodation nightmare with Donegal Daily in a bid to raise awareness for the housing crisis gripping students.Thousands of students from Donegal travel across Ireland to attend third-level institutions, with Dublin and Galway being the most popular destination. Nationally, over 52,000 students got offered CAO places on Monday, 1,985 of which are from Donegal.Rent has sky-rocketed as demand exceeds supply, with Dublin’s rates are now 5.2% higher than the last peak in early 2008, just before the economic downturn. A single bedroom in Dublin can set you back €600 on average, a 15.7% hike since this time last year.Rent has reached a record high, as the availability of housing hits an all time low on property website Daft.ie Shockingly, in some instances a mortgage is cheaper than rent, as you can mortgage a house in Waterford for 32% cheaper than rental costs.Speaking to Donegal Daily, a 22 year old U.C.D. student from the Rosses who is going into her last year has highlighted several frustrations felt by students while searching for accommodation. She would rather remain anonymous as her landlord has not returned her deposit and does not want to jeopardize the return of her money.She said; “I was paying €510 for a very small shared room in a mouldy house in Donnybrook. When we first moved in, the house was disgusting and we had to clean it. There were a lot of things that we physically could not clean though, such as the blinds in my room which were just destroyed with black mould”.“The handles were falling off the doors and there was a lot of exposed wiring. The plug sockets kept tripping the whole house. If you wanted to plug anything in you had to put it half-in and half-out.”“The neighbours houses looked well-kept, whereas ours looked as run-down on the outside as it was on the inside”.“My landlord is putting the rent up again this year. The rent is just too expensive. Landlords are just getting too greedy now. They know students don’t have a lot of choice, and they’re taking advantage of that”. “The house was at least two decades old and it seems like the landlord hasn’t done anything with it since”.“There’s just nowhere to go and the rent is crazy”.“It’s just by pure luck that I got a house this year that I can just about afford. All the places I was looking at on the property websites were at least €700 a month for a room. A friend of a friend moved out of their house so it’s just so lucky that I got in on his place.”Commenting on the Daft.ie report, Ronan Lyons, economist at TCD and author of the Daft Report, said: “Ahead of a new academic year, the latest figures highlight the severe shortage of accommodation for students.” “While a large number of purpose-built student apartments are either being built or are planned, these will take time to come on stream and will only cater for those on higher incomes. The majority of students will face tough choices about where to study and where to live.”“Landlords are just getting greedy now” says student as rent now higher than Celtic Tiger was last modified: August 24th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:accommodationCAOdublinGalwayhousing crisislandlordsrentstudent housingUCD

(Jamaica Observer) Jamaican High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Seth George Ramocan, has called for a suspension of deportations to the island until the investigation into the Windrush scandal is published by Home Office and other issues surrounding immigration are resolved.Ramocan yesterday held a meeting at the Jamaican high commission in London with relatives of people who were deported to Jamaica earlier this month.According to the Guardian newspaper, the high commissioner said he was particularly concerned about the deportation of people who had lived in the UK since they were children, and also the removal of parents who had young children living in Britain.Listening to stories he described as “heart-rending” from families of those deported, the high commissioner said he was concerned about the “dignity and the human rights of the individuals earmarked for deportation”.“If these are people who have lived here since they were children, they have no connection, no relatives, no one to take care of them in Jamaica, then this for me is a human rights matter,” Ramocan was quoted as saying.“It is not just the people who are being deported, it is their children, it is their families. Are we acting intelligently, are we creating another set of problems when we do that?”The Guardian reported that the high commission had called the meeting of about 45 relatives of those deported, and also those who were still detained in immigration removal centres having escaped deportation, to hear their accounts of how people had been put on a charter flight earlier this month.The high commissioner was hoping to understand the details of how the Jamaican nationals had been treated, as part of an investigation, to inform a discussion with the Jamaican government about how they cooperate with the Home Office on future deportations, the UK newspaper said.Initially there was a list of 50 people scheduled to be on the February flight, which the home secretary said included murderers and rapists. In the days and hours before the flight, about 20 people were given a last-minute reprieve and only 28 men and one woman were deported. Half of that number had drug convictions, while one had committed a dangerous driving offence.
