Responding to the Budget, Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, said:

“The Chancellor’s pledge to do whatever it takes to support those affected by the pandemic will ring hollow for thousands of tenants and landlords across the country.

“The Government has admitted that private tenants have been hardest hit by the pandemic, and figures show that most of those in arrears are unable to access emergency housing support from local authorities.

“Despite this, the Chancellor has failed to provide the sector with the financial support needed to pay off rent debts built as a consequence of the virus.

“Without help to get arrears cleared, many tenants face the prospect of losing their homes and having damaged credit scores, which will undermine the Government’s efforts to help generation rent become generation buy.”

My blood boils when I listen to Sunak on TV, he gave money to those that then did two jobs, he starved others that had no jobs, he forget many Directors and Self Employed, a lot of his larger company buddies got help and well he forgot all about our sector, well he put many of us in more debt thank you Rishi - very bad spending of Tax Payers money if you ask me - Now he says pay you Vat back one of my business is still not open and he hoping for Vat - him and Boris have been Laurel and Hardy throughout - They caused 80% of the damage by not closing soon enough and now ask us to pay for their mistakes
