A new report carried out by the Centre for Housing Research in Ireland has found that the majority of students at five Dublin colleges had positive landlord-tenant relationship.

The Irish Times reported that the survey, which was commissioned by the Private Residential Tenancies Board, indicated that most of the 1,300 students who took part were pleased with their private rented accommodation.

It also indicated that as policies continue to focus on attracting students from other countries, demand for private rented accommodation close to universities is likely to increase.

Private landlords looking to take advantage of the student market may wish to target their advertising efforts accordingly, the study recommended, advising that college accommodation offices and students' unions often provide free advertising.

Last month, it was reported that a Liverpool landlord is offering an employment advice service on a regular basis to help tenants get back to work.

Riverside hosts the event - which also boosts landlord-tenant relationships by providing a forum for both parties to discuss any issues that may have arisen - every Wednesday.
