Responding to the publication today of the Government’s review on short-term holiday lets, Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, said:
“The growth in holiday lets is a direct consequence of the Government’s attack on long-term rented housing.
“Tax policies actively discourage long-term investment in the private rented sector by landlords. With a Housing Secretary that wants to shrink the size of the sector, it is little wonder many landlords have jumped ship to the holiday lets market.
“As a result, for many in holiday hot spots finding a long-term home to rent is all but impossible. With demand for such housing at a record high, all it is doing is increasing rents when tenants can least afford it.
“The Government needs to end its anti-landlord attitude and develop pro-growth tax plans to help renters access the housing they need.”
