About Us

The Group

The Multi-Unit Developments (MUD) Act Reform Group is an informal alliance comprised of the Apartment Owners’ Network, Circle Voluntary Housing Association, Clúid Housing, Co-Operative Housing, Oaklee Housing, Respond and Tuath Housing. The Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland (SCSI) supports the work of the Group

The group was set up in 2019 to try to move forward the recommendations contained in the seminal report, Owners’ Management Companies: Sustainable Apartment Living in Ireland.

Programme for Government Commitment

The MUD Act Reform Group successfully lobbied for inclusion of the following commitment to MUD Act reform in the Programme for Government:

We will conduct a review of the existing management company legislation, to ensure that it is fit for purpose and that it acts in the best interests of residents.”

This commitment came into effect with the formation of the current Government on 27 June 2020, but it has yet to be acted upon.

Our Committee

The Committee which oversees the work of the MUD Act Reform Group is made up of two representatives each from Clúid and the Apartment Owners’ Network, and one each from Circle, Co-Operative Housing, Oaklee, Respond and Tuath.

Clúid provides the secretariat to the group and it is currently availing of the services of advocacy consultant, Pat Montague, to drive forward its campaign.
