Ten­ant owes over €5,000 in rent

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE DUBLIN based own­ers of a house in Wex­ford took to the District Court in a bid to have a ten­ant leave the premises and pay ar­rears due in rent.

Kevin and Laura Haugh, with an ad­dress at Ballinteer in Dublin, took their case be­fore Judge Ger­ard Haughton in the ab­sence of Lisa Ber­gin of 94 Clu­ain Dara, Clonard.

Plain­tiff solic­i­tor Cather­ine O’Con­nor noted that the Haughs had al­ready been granted a PRTB (pri­vate res­i­den­tial te­nan­cies board) de­ter­mi­na­tion that they were en­ti­tled to pos­ses­sion of the prop­erty and pay­ment of over­due rent amount­ing to thou­sands of euro.

Ms Ber­gin did not at­tend the PRTB hear­ing ei­ther, noted the solic­i­tor, who stated that the ar­rears now ran to €5,731.

The weekly rent was €150, the court was told. Judge Ger­ard Haughton granted the plain­tiffs a de­cree against the ten­ant for this sum, with an or­der re­quir­ing her to leave the house and to pay €900 in le­gal costs.
