‘ Sex for rent ’ propositions to vulnerable tenants ‘ not unusual ’. The tenant said she had to leave because the rent was to expensive the landlord replied:“Are you coming to live with me in my house?” Rich Premier League clubs way off the mark in cutting staff pay.

Sex - for - rent was a "shocking" reality of the struggle students were facing in today's unaffordable rental market, Will Matthews, president of the Auckland University Students' As rental prices marched ever upward across the country, she said desperate tenants become willing to do " unusual and sad things".

“This is something I discussed with our advisors last week on women’s experiences of the rental sector and yes unwanted approaches from landlords come up from time to time.

It’s something we’re going to be looking at, women’s experiences in the rental sector in a bit more detail going forwards, but it’s unfortunately not a once off or unusual. 

Coppinger said she’d been in contact with a young woman who was renting a “bedsit in all but name” in the Rathmines area in Dublin and who’d experienced the approach.

Chief executive of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre Noeline Blackwell told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland today that they have also come across similar cases but that tenants might not know they can get support if they are made to feel unsafe or uneasy by such behaviour by landlords.

Sex for rent : Case of landlord propositioning tenant ' not a once off or unusual '. Students or other tenants in houseshares who are not on the lease are “second-class” housemates who do not qualify for tenancy rights, the Peter McVerry Trust told TheJournal.ie.

“To be totally clear, it is entirely unacceptable to have a situation where somebody would proposition a vulnerable person, a person who’s vulnerable because they don’t have enough money or because they haven’t accommodation or might be homeless. To proposition them for actual activity is entirely wrong and unacceptable, and may even be a criminal offence,” Blackwell said.

Clarifying the legalities around such an approach, Blackwell said that it may be an offence in certain circumstances. 

The law says that somebody who propositions a prostitute for sexual activity for money or other consideration is committing an offence. Now, prostitution itself is not an offence in Ireland anymore, but the person who makes the proposition is committing an offence if they do it.

Trial forced to restart after woman ‘followed the crowd and joined jury by mistake’

Trial forced to restart after woman ‘followed the crowd and joined jury by mistake’ A crown court case had to be restarted after a woman “followed the crowd” and joined the jury by mistake, it has been reported. The woman, who had been summoned for jury service but not selected for the trial, inadvertently followed a chosen jury into the courtroom and sat down among them. She had been sitting outside the court in a pool of people from which panels are drawn to sit on juries. She took the place of a missing male juror who had been sworn on to the jury but wasn’t there, the Southend Standard reported.

Sex for rent : Case of landlord propositioning tenant ' not a once off or unusual '. Here's why tenants can take discrimination cases against landlords at the Workplace Relations Commission.

“The thing is, that a person will have to consider themselves as in prostitution in order to come within that category.”

“I don’t know of any prosecutions that have taken place, but it may very well be and the propositioning also amounts to sexual harassment, and a breach of tenancy agreements very often as well,” Blackwell added.
