Labour Manifesto - Attack on the PRS

Did you actually read the manifesto? This is a very biased article and you’ve missed out some important points.

Most notable a Department for Housing, a levy on overseas companies buying homes, keeping the Land Registry in public hands, and a major focus on building homes and making social housing fairer and fit for purpose.

The levy on second homes (double council tax) is already available to councils to use. This will be used to end street homelessness within 5 years. For anyone who lives in a city, or in areas like Cornwall which are becoming ghost towns because no one lives there, this is desirable.

Here’s the relevant section on Housing in the Manifesto.

Please, some less biased writing would be appreciated.

The Conservatives want to abolish section 21, have attacked the PRS mercilessly without warning or without anything being in their manifesto. They will sell of the Land Registry, They Introduced immigration checks by landlords (Right to Rent) and really have no plans for anything. They promised right to buy for HA tenants 9 years ago and that still hasn’t happened along with many other promises. Adult social care anyone.
If you want another wasted decade for this country vote for the Conservatives, if you want something better, vote for anyone else!... Read More

As a Landlord in the General Election I intend to vote for:

Deficit is not the same as national debt. If you reduce public spending to the bone, as has happened in the last decade, then the deficit is of course lower. The recent pledges by the Conservatives to increase police numbers, and spending on the NHS etc (that are necessary and long overdue) will increase the deficit again.
The international financial crash in 2008 wasn't Labours fault and of course the economy was damaged and at a low point when the Tories took over in 2010.
National debt has been growing throughout the past decade. You can see from the chart in the link that it was pretty stable under Labour till 2008.

As a Landlord in the General Election I intend to vote for:

I can’t understand why anyone would vote Conservative. They have ruined the country, the economy and will do more stupid things that affect landlords. They also don’t care about you or me. They only care about money in their pockets - not yours.

Are you all really that scared of Corbyn? He’s not an idiot. Labour have big plans for all sectors and those will take up most of their time - not destroying landlords, they know the PRS is essential and they care about people on benefits so should raise the LHA rates to a reasonable level in the south.

I like the NHS, I want to see the country united again, can’t see that happening under Johnson, or with a hard Brexit that will decimate the economy. I think we’ll lose Scotland either way.

Have a conscience please. If you can think of one good reason to vote Tory (other than the alternative is worse), then please tell me.... Read More

Land for the Many - Not for Landlords

Reply to the comment left by NW Landlord at 06/06/2019 - 15:33
The 3 year tenancy will be similar to a 6 month AST, its just a longer term. If the tenant stops paying then it would be a fault eviction. Labour haven't said anything about getting rid of section 21. Landlords will still be able to sell in certain circumstances (death, moving back in) I would imagine. This is just a paper not actual policy. Putting council tax back on the building will be like Building rates in the 1980's before the dreaded Poll Tax/ now Council Tax.
The land reforms are of interest and could sort out the land banking and major issues in London and most expensive areas, if they are carried out correctly.... Read More

Landlords Alliance - Emergency Euro Elections Statement

Reply to the comment left by Dr Rosalind Beck at 29/05/2019 - 12:22
I watched a documentary recently about the rise of the far right in Europe, so there is an issue (hopefully not a big one) often tied in with Nationalism. And also an issue with Islamophobia and selective xenophobia. The lines can get blurred and its important to call out 'hate politics'.
Corbyn isn't as extreme as some people think. I don't fear a Labour govt at all. I've looked at some of the Tory policies over recent years - e.g rises in minimum wage and thought if that was a Labour govt there would be a big fuss, but not a whimper because they are seen as the party of business. Even though their economic policies are terrible.... Read More
