The Local Authority and Approved Housing bodies are interested in purchasing and leasing vacant properties and sites in Limerick city and county with a view to achieving social housing targets set out under Rebuilding Ireland - Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.
Selling Your Property
Limerick City and County Council's Acquisition Programme is currently under review - where you submit details of the property for sale it may be considered appropriate for an Approved Housing Body to purchase the house - where this is the case we will make contact with you to outline next steps.
Limerick City and County Council will purchase one-bed units throughout Limerick city and county - subject to the normal terms and conditions. While we may not be in a position to purchase larger units please consider leasing your property to Limerick City and County Council. We will only consider properties that are currently vacant (property must be vacant before same is offered for sale or lease.
A property will be considered if it is currently vacant/owner occupied and demand can be established. The objective of the Acquisition Programme is to provide homes for the people of Limerick in sustainable communities with a good balance of mixed income and mixed tenure households.
Note: If you are an owner occupier, it will be necessary to provide details of where you propose to live as the Council cannot consider the acquisition of a property if it will render the owner homeless/ in need of social housing.
