Lease cap move opens door for homes boost

28th January 2018

The Department of Housing has decided to abolish a cap on the length of lease permitted under the “leasing initiative for the delivery of social housing” following a review by junior minister Damien English.

An earlier version of the scheme attracted 24 expressions of interest, including a €100m proposal from Bartra Capital, an investment vehicle set up by Richard Barrett, the former Treasury Holdings partner. None of the projects progressed.
