The Simon Communities of Ireland’s quarterly Locked Out report shows yet another stark decline in the availability of affordable properties.
There were only 80 properties available under a standard or discretionary limit in at least one of the four household categories examined in the study. This represented a decrease of 46% on the 148 properties which were available within at least one HAP category in the December 2021 study and a drastic 92% less than the 906 available in June 2021.
Across all the areas surveyed, there were only 737 unique properties available to rent at any price within the 16 study areas over the three dates surveyed. This represented a decrease of 45% from the 1,349 properties available to rent in the December 2021 Locked Out report.
