Ghost Estates facing threat of Squatting

Empty properties pose all manner of problems. Security, insurance, maintenance and disposal all present a unique set of challenges to owners of empty and vacant buildings. As individual problems they can be costly and time consuming to address, however, when these problems have to be addressed together and quickly, the problems can suddenly become very complex and expensive.

This October, the story of William Tuohy hit the press. He has been squatting in this NAMA, tax-payer owned property and in what could be a landmark ruling, the Judge has decided (based on the evidence presented) to rule in favour of the defendant and allow him to stay legally in this property.

This example highlights the need for an effective and comprehensive property management solution to be implemented. Tuohy's claim that the property was unlocked on entry emphasises the need not only for security to be in place but also to ensure that your insurance cover does not become void.
