All exposure we can get is good so please contact them.

If we all contact as many people as possible every day, and encourage them to do same, we WILL achieve our goal.

Suggestions alone are futile, every person who signs the petition also need to play their part in terms of promoting it.

I am in full admiration to you all, particularly the likes of Mark, Ros, Connie, BTL Scotland and many others. The work you have put in since the Budget has been awesome. I just wish that I had the capability to write with such knowledge as you guy's. I will support you as much as I can and my letter to our local MP is under construction, also signed the petition today. Thank you.

I have just sent the following email to all my local letting agents here in Newcastle. If anyone wants to copy and paste it into emails to their local agents please feel free....

Dear Letting Agent,

As you may know our chancellor, the independently wealthy George Osborne, has announced a plan to stop us individual landlords offsetting our finance costs against rental income. This may have a huge, possibly disastrous, effect on individual landlords – in other words, your clients. And if your clients are adversely affected you will be too.

A vigorous campaign is needed to stop this measure. Concerned Landlords on a property forum called Property 118 has been trying to get such a campaign going. I attach a link below.

Large companies and social landlords will not be treated this way so the measure is unfair and discriminatory. Please sign the petition against this regressive measure. Please pass this email, or your own version of it to your Landlords so they can sign it too.

The link is below as is a link to the Landlord Portal where I found the discussion thread.

Thank you

Stewart

I have signed the petition and forwarded it to 18 people including three councillors, a county councillor (Who used to work for me), several landlords who were unaware and some other relevant people.
It really does not take very long to do this folks, so please do likewise.

Nice one Stewart. It was a two minute job to copy and paste your letter and send off to one of my letting agents - CPS in Cardiff. I'll find some more letting agents I know now and do the same.
Thanks.

Hi Stewart,
I've asked my letting agent (also a LL in his own right), to spread the word.
