The Chancellor Philip Hammond has called an early, 29th of October, budget this year to cater for final Brexit negotiations.
The National Landlords Association (NLA) has submitted a shopping list of recommendations it would like the government to take up in the Autumn Budget on behalf of its members.

NLA Policy and Public Affairs Manager, Meera Chindooroy, said: “We believe the Government needs to consider the implications of the policies they have introduced in recent years. Already we have seen landlords start to sell property, which only serves to limit the amount of choice available to renters and continue to make housing unaffordable.
“Landlords are running a business, but the Government refuses to acknowledge that and treat them appropriately. If they want landlords to continue to provide homes, and fill the gap in social housing, they need to properly incentivise landlords to remain in business.”
