The initial £15,000 fund-raising target to seek legal opinion on the viability of a Judicial Review of Clause 24 of the Finance Bill 2015 was reached within hours.
Is Clause 24 of the 2015 Finance Bill (‘restricting finance cost relief for individual landlords’) discriminatory?
We think it is!

It’s far from over yet though, this was just phase one.
When we have the legal opinion, and assuming it is positive, a further round of funding will be required to issue a pre-action protocol letter to the Government. This will create yet another wave of positive publicity highlighting the ‘Alice in Wonderland tax’. Further funding will then be required to issue proceedings and to make provisions for the other sides costs, just in case the case is lost and the claimants are ordered to pay them.
Whatever the outcome of the legal case, this is possibly the best ever opportunity that Private Landlords and associated service providers will ever get to join forces and dispell many of the negative myths promulgated by media and other political self-interest groups, some of which laughably masquerade as “housing charities”.
I am encouraging all landlords to become keyboard warriors and to comment of media articles. Not to respond directly to the negativity and the wind ups but to focus on what an important service private landlords provide in the UK housing sector.
If you are looking for inspiration on what to write in the comments sections of newspaper websites see this article.
THIS is the level of ignorance we are up against.
