Multi-Unit Developments / Managed Estates


Ireland's population is increasing however our household sizes are getting smaller. We have an increasingly diverse and mobile population mix. There are trends towards city-centre living.

These and other factors mean that apartments and managed estates are playing an increasingly important role in meeting the country's housing needs. Not everyone understands the collective structures and shared services that go with managed estates, or multi-unit developments.

Here we provide a resource for people living in multi-unit developments. This includes some useful links, FAQs, complaints procedures, and the legal system in place for owners' management companies and multi-unit developments.

In addition, our YouTube channel hosts recordings of training webinars for stakeholders in MUDs and OMCs.

This compilation brings together in one place writing from the Agency in relation to multi-unit developments and owners’ management companies.

Articles explain the relationships, stakeholders, and systems underpinning apartments, an expanding component of Ireland’s housing stock. 

It is hoped that the material will provide readers with an enhanced understanding of the elements necessary to achieve successful apartment living.
