A Consumer Guide to Apartment Ownership Under the Multi-Unit Developments (MUD) Act 2011
Apartment and multi-unit living is relatively new to Ireland, with much of the development occurring in
the past ten to fifteen years. However, a legal framework and regulatory system to govern this new type of housing was not simultaneously developed. This deficiency has resulted in a wide variety of problems and challenges for apartment owners which the MUD Act now seeks to address.
The Act became law on 1st April 2011 and it applies to all multi-unit developments, i.e. developments
with not less than five apartments with shared amenities, facilities and services. This includes private housing estates that have an OMC structure and mixed-use developments which are residential but have also some commercial elements such as shops or offices.
