Hi Jeanine @jaconaty1

You've probably read elsewhere of the complications involved with the Stamp 0 process. Currently you do have to apply from WITHIN Ireland. Efforts are underway to change this, which will be a very positive change imo. 

I have read the documentation on this Stamp a number of times a number of times, and I don't believe there are any restrictions on outside travel, however if you find differnt, we'd love to hear back from you.

Best wishes,

Liam

Hello, Liam et. al.,

Liam, thank you for setting up this wonderful site! Trying to find information on moving to Ireland can be a kind of circular process (one site sending you to another, site two sending you back to site one, etc.), and this is a real treasure trove.

I have been making a decent living (above the 50,000 threshold) as a writer for a while now, and am starting to think seriously about moving to Ireland. I have been a number of times (and am going back again in March, for a residency at the Heinrich Boll cottage in Achill) and my  best friend of 20 years lives in Dublin, so I think I'm making a relatively informed decision.

Anyway, I've read that there is a Stamp 0 special dispensation for self-sufficient writers and artists, but I haven't been able to find any detailed information. Does anyone know if this is fact or fiction? Or, if not, who I might ask?

Thank you so much! And congrats to all of you who already live in such a beautiful and culturally-rich place!

Best wishes,

Chris

Regarding restrictions on outside travel this was my response from INIS.  

 

Dear Jeanine,

I acknowledge receipt of your email, the contents have been noted. If you
are to reside in the State on Stamp 0 conditions, you must reside
continuously in the State.

Continuous residency means living in the State for the period covered by
this temporary and limited permission, allowing for reasonable periods of
absence from the State for holidays, exceptional family circumstances or
commitments outside the State arising from business or employment carried
on within the State.

Regards,

Hi,

 

My name is Zelimir Turkalj and I am planning to move from Croatia to Ireland, Cork in a few months. We are family of 4, maybe 6, depends if wife’s sister and her child will move with us.

I’ll search about Cork in threads and hope to find everything I need to know especially about renting a property for start. I know that’s the biggest issue atm.

Any advice is more than welcome.

Hi Liam and thank you for the great site 🙂

My wife and I are planning to move to Dublin in the next few months from the UK as British Citizens to escape the madness of Brexit.

I'm really looking for anyone's experience of finding the their apartment/house and how to deal with landlords. Specifically I would like to know how people initially pay for a deposit, ie Cash/Bank transfer etc. I'm in the process of setting up a KBC Basic Current account for direct debits, standing orders etc but I can't find any solid information on how deposits/up front rent is normally paid. Would I be expected when looking for an apartment to be carry 4000 euros in cash?

Many Thanks

Giles

Welcome to the site Zelimir @zele2510 🙂 It's good to have you here. 

Cork is my hometown, so fire away with questions as they come up. Happy to help!

Hi Giles @manilala and welcome to the site! 

Great first question! I don't exactly have personal experience with this, as I rented directly from a relative, and did in fact pay cash as a deposit. But it was for an amount far less than you mentioned above. 

Speaking from knowledge of others who have been in your situation, I can safely say you could run into any mix of requests for a deposit i.e bank transfer, cashiers cheque, cash, etc. The least safe is cash, and if you are asked to go that route, be sure to double check who you are handing money over to, and be sure to get a receipt etc. It'd be pretty rare that you'd be expected to have that amount of money inside your coat pocket. A cashiers cheque will be acceptable to most landlords. Personal cheques may be acceptable in some cases, however they'll take a little longer to clear, and you may have to wait longer for a set of keys.

Check out independent.ie and irishtimes.ie. They both have sections relevant to new tenants and may cover this with some examples. Also some of the main letting websites have good sources of info for tenants e.g. myhome.ie, daft.ie. 

It's also a good idea to come up to speed on tenant rights and responsibilities.  http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/housing/renting_a_home/tenants_rights_and_obligations.html

 

I hope the move to Ireland goes smoothly. Brexit 🙁

 

Best wishes

Liam

Thanks for the warm welcome Liam !!

Yes I believe I will be apologising for Brexit and being English to every new person I meet in Ireland for a long time...

Regarding banking, it's pretty limited being non-resident so I think either a standing order or cash is probably my best bet. I don't believe KBC have any branches (they call them 'hubs') where I can withdraw cash from a teller, so am restricted to ATMs and no way of getting a cashiers cheque.

Does anyone know if landlords typically ask for the deposit and a months rent up front, or is it lets say 2000 euros for a deposit, then when you get the keys you then pay with a standing order your monthly rent?

Once we actually get somewhere to rent and settle in I can upgrade my account to a resident type with the bells and whistles.

Well ty Liam.

 

Do you still live in Cork? You think it would be hard to find a house for 6 people? 3 adults 3 children.
