Rent Collections ManagerAs well as being Centrick Property’s walking encyclopedia and speaker of most European languages (very helpful when letting to our continental clients), Phil is the head honcho of the Rent Collections team. One of the longest standing members of staff, Phil remembers a time when he was just looking after a couple of hundred monthly rental payments, now it’s a couple of thousand. But under Phil’s stewardship the effectiveness of our Rent Colletions team remains unchanged with some of the lowest arrears rates in the industry (just 2% compared to a recently quoted national average of 12%, not bad, eh?)
If travelling to America in 2015, ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) is a form that you are required to complete prior to travelling, if you are a citizen of a country that has signed up to the Visa Waiver Programme (as Ireland has).
Questions on the form are straightforward; it can be submitted electronically right up to the time of boarding (though the Department of Homeland Security recommends you submit 72 hours before flying); and a response is usually received within seconds. The Application fee is $14. https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov is the only website that should be used to submit an ESTA application.
We recommend that consumers avoid all other websites promising to handle your application. Such sites will have the appearance of an official government website, with names such as ESTA Application for Citizens of Ireland. These third parties sites usually promise to fast-track your application, which is unnecessary, whilst charging enormous fees.
