    Liveline Monday 2 March 2015



    Margaret paid her property tax last year with her credit card. She set up a direct debit for it to come out again this year. She was shocked on Friday when she got a letter from Revenue saying that her Local Property Tax was outstanding and threatening to instruct her employer to deduct same. Peter got the same letter and can't get through to Revenue. Siobhan also got the same letter. They talk to Joe.  

    Amanda Gallagher spoke to Joe in February 2014. She was hoping to self-build her own home. She told Joe about new regulations that were coming into effect and how they were going to impact the cost. Minister Alan Kelly has now called the regulations "overburdensome" and will be looking at "tweaking" them. We get an update from Amanda. 

    Teresa is a landlady. She has been since 2012. At present she has a tenant who is not paying rent but won't move out. She says that "stressful" doesn't begin to describe it. Joe talks to other landlords about their rental frustrations. 

    James lives in Tallaght. He tells Joe about the local whistling bridge which is keeping him awake at night. 

    Billy lives in Co. Meath. Last Monday his garden shed was broken into. The most valuable things that were taken were two scrambler dirt bikes. One that his 10 year old son uses. He tells Joe about what the bike means to his son.
