Empowering Renters with Dr Michael Byrne S.2 Ep.2

This Reboot Republic podcast talks to Dr Michael Byrne, from UCD School of Social Work, Policy & Social Justice about his new report ‘Security and agency in the Private Rented Sector’. We discuss the issues facing renters, the role of cuckoo funds making housing unaffordable, the ineffectiveness of subsidising homeownership, the power landlords have over tenants, the legislation that needs to change to make renting a secure home in Ireland and the importance of tenants taking action, such as the new tenants union CATU. We also delve into the challenges of affordability and security of tenure and how they continue to have devastating impacts for renters.
