Paragon Mortgages’ Private Rental Sector (PRS) Trends Report for Q2 2017 was based on interviews with 201 experienced residential landlords.
The landlords surveyed were asked to list in order of their priorities the steps they would most like the government to take next to help with their rental businesses.
Number 1 priority was the reversal of Section 24 mortgage interest relief reductions for individual landlords announced in the Summer Budget 2015 by the them Chancellor George Osborne and now being phased in from this tax year.
Number 2 was a request for NO more changes and a period of stability.
Number 3 was for a government exemption of SDLT and CGT for landlords incorporating their portfolios into limited companies. Of the landlords surveyed 11% had already taken action to incorporate and mitigate the mortgage interest relief reductions.
The report also showed that:

Higher tax charges for landlords have combined with a general increase in uncertainty to drive confidence levels down.

This would suggest that despite the negativity around the market that the PRS continues to perform well.”
