Irishlandlord.com sent out an e-letter earlier this week reminding landlords of the deadline for paying the Non Principal Private Residence charge (NPPR) is Sunday 30th June.
They said "Despite the fact that you may already have paid the Local Property Tax (LPT) on your rental property you are still liable to pay the €200 NPPR charge for this year.Even if a rental property is empty the charge is still due. The liability for the charge is based on the ownership of the property on March 31st last. i.e the person owning the property on that date is the person responsible for the charge for this year" So if you have not done you need to get a move on to avoid late payment fees.

The newsletter also advised about the Changes to the Rent Supplement
"The Minister for Social Protection has implemented revised rent limits under the Rent Supplement scheme. These new limits came into effect on Monday 17 June 2013 and will be in place until 31 December 2014.
The purpose of the Rent Limit Review is to establish new maximum rent limits which are in line with the most up-to-date market data available
The Department has completed a full review of rental costs throughout the country using data received from the Private Residential Tenancies Board (PRTB) of actual rental tenancies registered with them.
The new rent limits show increases in Dublin and Galway. There have been reductions in rent limits in rural counties reflecting conditions in these rental markets. " More information here at Irishlandlord site
