Update – Meeting of 21 May, etc.

Meeting of 21 May 2019
We are very grateful to Dublin Fire Brigade, and Eamon O’Boyle of Eamon O’Boyle & Associates for their fire safety presentations at our meeting of Tuesday, 21 May 2019.  A large attendance prompted an informative Q&A session, expanding on the presenters’ essential fire safety guidance for owners and OMC directors.  Slides from the session are now available on our Fire Safety page.

Thanks to all those who attended our AGM.  We intend in our activity and advocacy in the period ahead to take on board the suggestions raised.

Dáil debate on OMCs/MUDs
As discussed at our meeting, click here for an interesting recent Dáil debate on the OMC/MUD sector. Our advocacy work receives mention.  The debate refers to the provisions of the Property Services (Regulation) (Amendment) (Management Company Regulation) Bill 2018.  It is welcome to see these matters receive the attention of legislators.

Lending to OMCs
We are interested to have a sense of finance options available to owners’ management companies to meet capital expenditure works.  We would appreciate if you would take the time to email us, in confidence, to let us know-

  • If your OMC has borrowed funds from a financial institution?
  • If not, is your OMC interested in hearing about credit options available?

Next meeting
Our next meeting is expected to take place in September 2019.  In the meantime, please keep an eye Facebook and Twitter for updates.
