Homeowners impacted by Mica defective blocks have said the revised redress scheme announced by the government this week will leave them massively out of pocket.
Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien said it was a “100% redress scheme” which would cost the State €2.2 billion, he also said this was an extraordinary intervention by the state.
However homeowners say the devil is in the detail and the scheme is not 100% redress.
Under the scheme, homeowners rebuilding houses will be offered €145 per square foot for the first 1,000 feet of their home, dropping to €110 per square foot for the second 1,000 feet and €100 per square foot thereafter.
