My name is Kieron Dunster and I am quiet professional teacher, 26, from Dublin that is seeking a place. I have references from previous landlords if needed.
Are you aware Hap scheme?
Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) is a form of social housing support provided by all local authorities. HAP replaces Rent Supplement for those with
a long-term housing need who qualify for social housing support. Under HAP, local authorities provide housing assistance for households with a long-term
housing need, including many long-term Rent Supplement recipients. HAP provides a more integrated system of housing supports and allows households that find full-time work to remain in the scheme. Under HAP, local authorities will make payments on behalf of tenants directly to landlords for rent.
This scheme is perfect for landlords for many reasons:
>Direct payment – you will be paid electronically on the last Wednesday of each month. This payment covers the occupation of the property by the HAP tenant for that calendar month. The payment is subject to terms and conditions including rent limits and that the HAP tenant pays a
rent contribution to the local authority.
>Consistency of payment – the HAP payment to you will not change if your tenant’s income changes.
>Low administration – you don’t need to collect rent or make requests for payment from your HAP tenant.
>Easy banking – all payments are made electronically.
>Tax Relief - Since 1 January 2016, landlords who rent to tenants in receipt of social housing supports such as HAP may avail of increased tax relief. This allows property owners to claim 100% on their mortgage interest, as an expense against rental income. To qualify for this tax relief, you must
undertake to make the accommodation available to qualifying tenants for at least three years, and the undertaking must be registered with the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB).
Please let me know if you are interested and I can send you the HAP booklet/brochure via email.
By reading the booklet this will give you more information and explain how simply and easy payments are made consistently every month.
