"No foreigners" - Another Gumtree property debacle

Last month a Dungannon rental property was listed illegally on Gumtree stating "no foreign nationals need apply". The advert contravened Northern Ireland equality legislation and was yet another example of the pit-falls of using unregulated sites for property rentals. Had this landord spent just a little bit of money and asked an agent to handle the marketing, the agent would have explained that this was unlawful and the landlord wouldn't now be facing a potential fine or prosecution. In addition, any landlord either ignorant of the law, or prepared to break it is not a landlord that tenants should be considering renting from. Once again, it demonstrates that using this type of site for property rentals brings higher risks. 

Landlords - keep yourself on the right side of the law. Ask us to let and/or manage your property for a very low fee.
