Ireland: Moving to Dublin in July - requirements to rent?:
Hi! I'm moving to Dublin with my girlfriend in July and we'll be looking for a place to rent (just us 2, not shared), ideally D2,D4 or D6.
My main concerns are the following:
- How long on average would it take to find an apartment in the city? We would need to plan an Airbnb in the meantime.
- What do landlords ask you for when you're renting? I know they can ask for bank statements, payslips etc, but I also read about the PPS number. The problem is that to apply for a PPS number you need an Irish address...but I need the PPS number to rent an Irish address...see the paradox? Or can I just use the Airbnb address as a temporary placeholder to get the PPS?
