Banks are making up to 40 children a month homeless – you can help put a stop to this!

Around 20 families each month become homeless just because their buy-to-let landlord has been forced to sell up by their bank.
And there are thousands more families at risk*. Families can find themselves evicted from their homes even though they are completely up-to-date with their rent and have years left to run on their tenancy agreement.


We think this is wrong. And it can be changed.

Focus Ireland is calling for a change in the law so that tenants living in ‘buy-to-let’ properties are protected. So people who have a running tenancy could not be evicted just because the bank or landlord wants to sell their home from under them.
