Owners Of Defective Apartments Seeking 100% Redress

Protestors gathered outside Leinster House this afternoon.

Owners of defective apartments are seeking 100% redress to manage issues within their home. 

Protestors gathered outside Leinster House this afternoon to mark five years since the Oireachtas Housing Committee's 'Safe as Houses' report. 

The paper found there were around 100,000 homes built between 1991 and 2013 with defects.

Demonstrators want to have their repairs covered by the state, while those who have already carried out work and want to be able to claim their money back.
