With an impending General Election and none of the established political parties vying for the Landlord vote, will it be a case of holding your nose and supporting the least worst option?

As a snap shot for the PRS please be our guest in completing our polls below for who you would consider now and who you voted for in the last election.

If you would like to, please also let us know in the comments section below your reason for intending to cast that vote, and why you have changed your mind from 2017 if indeed you have.

I will vote Labour so that Conservatives and it’s Brexit Party don’t fully privatise our NHS. There would be less money to go around for tenants to afford the raised rents due to Section 24. Our NHS is my main concern, not my portfolio and trying to hold on to money as it brings stress. Get rid of the properties and go live on a beach 🏝

I live in NE England and voted Leave. I have always voted Conservative and, although I am very disappointed in their attitude to PRS landlords, I will still vote the same.
Apart from Newcastle, in 2016 all other areas of the NE voted in favour of Leave. As most people know, up here people predominantly vote Labour. It will be very interesting to see what happens at this GE. Some will of course be very angry with the Corbyn stance on Brexit and will vote for the Brexit Party. The idea of a Corbyn government scares a lot of people but will it result in more NE Conservative votes..?

I'm voting conservative as there is no real alternative for us. If Bojo and farage had agreed a plan I would have voted Brexit as a protest as our tory seat is quite safe,haha. I feel sure it will be another hung parliament but with Brexit party I hope. I dread the thought of labour or lib Dems getting in or holding balance of power, probably move abroad and retire if they do. I do have a little faith in Bojo if he gets a majority but it needs to be a decent one which is unlikely. I feel a no deal Brexit is best option which won't be as bad as the doomsayers' predict, the EU need us as much as we need them but this time on our terms. Whatever anybody says this election is about this terrible Brexit sham but unlikely that much will change. Its time that election promises are made accountable legally to stop all the lies and bullshit that comes out. That's my whinge for the day.

And Corbyn will wreck the economy and what will happen to the NHS then? Property prices will crash and property will be hard to sell - even with your tenant discount!!

I’m confused by the Poll results, apologies if I’m a bit thick but I don’t understand.............how could 8% have voted for the Brexit Party in 2017 when it was only formed in 2019 ?

All the comments so far have been fairly predictable and generally follow a sensible conclusion in their particular circumstances, so I won’t add to that group. My thoughts are really more general about the country as a whole and where we are going. The fact is we are undergoing a culture war which has reached a sort of crescendo with this Brexit situation. The forces of elitism are pitched against the population at large and the balance of power is very finely set. My thoughts are that we need to sort out this mess decisively now, so voting for the Conservatives is the only real choice in this election.

My constituency is always Labour but voted 63% to Leave. My first priority is to ensure Corbyn doesn’t get his hands on the keys to No. 10. I feel the best way to do this is to vote Brexit Party as I simply cannot see the Tories winning in my area. So tactical voting to keep Comrade Corbyn out is very different in each constituency, it’s not automatically a Tory vote that will do it. Plus the Conservatives (really the Liberals in disguise) gave us Section 24, 3% Stamp Duty, Removal of Wear and Tear Allowance, Tenant Fees Ban and Treason May vowed she’d remove Section 21 ..... do you really want to reward them for all this ? And they shafted us over Brexit as well.

I wonder why an ex pat gets to vote in the General Election when EU nationals living, working and paying taxes in the UK don't?
