Effective voids management in Ireland


Effective voids management in Ireland


This practice guide aims to help housing organisations let homes as quickly as possible and in the best possible condition, to tenants who will most benefit from them. It provides a brief overview of good practice in key areas of voids management, illustrated with examples from Ireland and the UK. It will be useful as a starting point for those working in the housing sector considering a comprehensive review of their voids management processes, and also for those seeking to address particular issues.
