Students have long been the biggest demographic of renters in Ireland, traditionally leaving home to attend college for third level education. The problem now facing students and parents is the growing cost of student living, including escalating rents and a lack of adequate housing.

According to Savills 18% of people in Ireland now live in private rental accommodation, which is 497,111 households. With no real history of long-term letting or leases and the introduction of Rent Pressure Zones to try to slow down rent increases, the growing concern is how renters can protect themselves in this progressively volatile market.

With house prices increasing more in the first six months of 2017 than the whole of 2016 and the cost of renting now 8% higher on average than at the peak of the Celtic Tiger in 2008, renters in Ireland are stuck sliding down slippery paths to no savings and no mortgages rather than climbing successfully onto the property ladder. The question is: with these odds, how do you roll the dice and win?

If you rent your property you will still need the same protection as if you had a mortgage and by not having life insurance cover, generation rent could be generation lost.
