Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

Here’s a letter template for you.
For the first time, as a long-time supporter and member of the Conservative Party, I am struggling for a reason to vote Conservative!
I would never even in my worst nightmare ever believe that a Conservative Government would wage such punitive attacks on small Landlords, without any consultation, and so brazenly unfair by taxing Landlords on fictitious profit, & excluding the wealthiest Landlords and corporations owning properties from this tax. It also goes against the Conservative manifesto pledge that was made just a few weeks earlier than the Budget announcement not to raise Income Tax. I was also disappointed with the rather lukewarm support that I received from you personally over this matter.
In reality though, it is not Landlords who will suffer the most under this measure but it will be the poorest in our society who will be facing steep rent rises, eviction and in many cases homelessness (putting more pressure on already cash strapped local Councils). This a stealth tax of the worst kind.
The principle in question is that of “trust”. Can I trust that the Conservative Party will correct this injustice and will not introduce even more punitive measures and burdens on the private rented sector, PRS?
I await your response
