The New National Landlords alliance, despite not being fully operational yet and awaiting the website build, has today got in to the ring to fight for landlords. See our tweet.
We have written to Chancellor Hammond with the following demands:
An amendment to sect 24 (we want it repealed) but decided to give them some wriggle room.
An immediate council tax holiday of 5 years to assist first time buyers, paid for by council efficiencies. It is simply wrong that Heads of councils earn more than the PM, paid for by tax payers – wrong, wrong, wrong.
Capital gains tax to be reduced and abolished where landlords sell to tenants. We pointed out to the Chancellor that a reduction would actually help the exchequer by increased revenue from more transactions.
We also pointed out to Chancellor Hammond that the PRS is not happy with this so called Conservative government, and Labour’s proposals for longer tenancies and rent controls are all we have left to fear. Perhaps not fear, as these proposals will finally wreck the market and eventually sanity must prevail.
Let us see if Central Government listen.
