Episode 2 of “Burnt by the sun” which was due to air RTE 1 TV on April was delayed due to technical issues and has now been rescheduled for Mon 18th May.

This episode features property in France and the ‘wonder’ that is ‘French Leaseback’. We’re all looking forward to it here!

Diarmaid Condon, an Irish property journalist, has contributed to the series and you can read more about the program on his very helpful property website.

Unfortunately. the program didn’t air as scheduled on 6th April due to some technical issues related to remote working. We are still waiting on a new date from RTE and will post here when we have one.

The TV program ‘Burnt by the Sun‘ is due to air RTE 1 at 21:35 on Mon 30th Mar and Mon 6th April. It will cover the experiences of Irish people who purchased foreign property and subsequently experienced problems.

The 2-part series will feature France in episode 2. The production crew traveled to France to shoot footage relating to the personal stories told.

The program will go some way to illustrating the ‘scam’ nature of many French leaseback sales, the fundamental flawed structure of the French tax incentive, and the unwillingness of the French authorities to take any action to remedy.

Many thanks to those who contributed to the program and to the program makers (Cornelia Street Productions), and of course to RTE (Irish national public service broadcaster) for commissioning.
