If you are looking for accommodation in private houses, please be aware that there may be bogus landlords around.
Ask if they are registered with StudentPad : accommodation.ucc.ie. Contact StudentPad firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm whether they are registered or not.
Ask for their RTB registration number. If given a number xxxx-xxxxxxxx you should then email email@example.com to confirm it.
If possible view the house before signing a lease or paying any money.
Ask the landlord for a recent clear photo of themselves standing in front of the actual premises.
If the bank account details given are GB instead of IE, then the bank account is in the UK and not Ireland
A recent scam involved a bogus landlord who claimed to be renting out their grandfather’s house. The photos supplied were for a very upmarket (non-student) accommodation. Shadowy Skype was used. Different email addresses were used in correspondence.
If it doesn’t feel right, or if it seems too good to be true, trust your instinct!
