Hi everyone, Would it not be a good idea to tax properties that are left empty and disincentivise them from remaining outside the available housing stock?
A residential property, in my opinion, should not be used purely as an investment as it should be used firstly as a home while the housing crisis is at such a peak.
Unlike the owner-occupiers, landlords provide homes that provide large tax incomes for the government which if used to build affordable housing would then help towards repairing the at best tarnished image of the landlord.
Should this not be government policy as opposed to punishing home-providing landlords?
