The annoyance is understandable and shared by most people I'm sure.The Landlord has behaved disgracefully and illegally. The Garda are worse than useless if they can't help someone gain access to their home when they have been evicted illegally and have nowhere to live.
So entering someone's home, throwing their possessions out of their home, changing the locks and refusing them entry is a civil matter? Wow.The annoyance is understandable and shared by most people I'm sure.
The Gardai have no role in Civil matters nor should they have, indeed no Police force in any progressive society like we live in have a role in matters as outlined, they would however provide safe shelter in any Garda station overnight should refuge be sought.
You do have a contract, it's just not on paper. And your landlord would be very unwise indeed to try and evict you. You'd have a mega case with the RTB if he tried to do that. Contact Threshold for advice and help.Thanks for your response and I do hope your right but unfortunately I don’t have anything in writing, I don’t have a contract or anything, just pay him cash every month
When I heard that the VDP never say no to any request for help I stopped supporting them.I hope Crisisnow got sorted.
He does highlight a problem with St. Vincent Dé Paul.
I rang them myself a number of years ago when I was extremely short of money and got much the same response, which is to say they weren't much help.
I still throw a little money in their collection backets but I don't 100% trust them.
