Affordable Housing Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed)
Fintan Warfield (Sinn Fein)
I move amendment No. 51:
In page 15, to delete lines 5 to 7.
The "long stop date" goes against the fundamental principles of affordable purchase or rent. If the initial equity is not recouped in 30 or 50 years, it effectively remains there as a charge for whenever the house is sold on. I would like to get the Minister of State's view on that. Is this amendment grouped with amendment No. 52?
