The administrative areas of the 4 Dublin local authorities (Dublin City Council, South Dublin County Council, Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown County Council and Fingal County Council) and of Cork City Council have been designated as Rent Pressure Zones and are covered by the measure. If your home or property falls within one of these local authority areas it is covered by the measure.
A further 12 Local Electoral Areas were designated as Rent Pressure Zones from 27 January 2017. The Local Electoral Areas of Maynooth and Cobh were designated as Rent Pressure Zones from 30 March 2017.

Details on the areas that are designated as Rent Pressure Zones will also be available on the website of the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government at www.housing.gov.ie
