Alan Kelly TD, Minister For Public & Commuter Transport has welcomed the increase in the revised Maximum Limits for Rent Supplement for people in North Tipperary announced by Minister Joan Burton.

Minister Kelly said “I am delighted with the increases as I raised this issue with Minister Burton on a number of occasions on behalf of my constituents. I am delighted that a more reasonable maximum rent

cap limit, which better reflects the actual market, has now been introduced in North Tipperary.

The purpose of the Rent Limit Review is to establish new maximum rent limits from June 2013 which are in line with the most up-to-date market data available. This review continues the previous rent limit reviews’ emphasis, to ensure that value for money is achieved while at the same time ensuring that people on Rent Supplement are not priced out of the market for private rented accommodation.
