Written answers (Question to Housing)

My Department does not hold the type of detailed information requested.

The administration of the Fair Deal Scheme, which includes an assessment of the assets of the applicant, including their property, is carried out by the HSE.

If a tenant of an individual local authority is accepted into the Fair Deal Scheme, issues relating to their tenancy of that dwelling are a matter for the local authority concerned to consider.
