Inventive Scheme for Homeowners to renovate their properties

Launched by Michael Noonan in Budget 2014, The Home Renovation Incentive Scheme (HRI) offers a temporary window in which homeowners can save 10pc on construction and up-grading work at a time when labour costs for home improvements are at their lowest in 15 years.
The scheme allows a VAT clawback of up to €4,050 on the 13.5pc VAT rate applied to work costing between €5,000 and €30,000 and which is carried out between October 25, 2013 and December 31, 2014.  Article from today's Independent on the pros and cons of the Scheme.  Link to page here -

Landlords, we require excellent quality properties for rent in Galway.  We have several VP's being rehoused in January and are desperately short of suitable high grade accommodation.  They have extremely high budgets, but finding it difficult to find the right properties.  Please call me on 086 226 1018 if you have something suitable or know someone that may have a suitable property.  Kind regards.  Yvonne Mullaney, Executive Sales and Lettings Galway City.
