The SNP have released their 2019 general election manifesto. This has been very briefly summarised with the key points of interest for Landlords and the PRS industry. Download the full manifesto here

After wading through 50 pages the below was all that could be found on first read that affected the housing market. Again I think landlords should take a lack of polices looking to be imposed upon the PRS as a good thing!

“For homeowners seeking to move but unable to get a mortgage due to issues with cladding following the Grenfell tragedy, we will press the UK Government to work with the mortgage industry to identify a viable solution that is compliant with Scots law.”

“Demand an immediate end to the benefit freeze, the abolition of the bedroom tax and the introduction of a period of uplifts to benefits of at least inflation.”

Lack of impact on PRS in the SNP Manifesto is probably because Scotland already has minimum tolerable and repairing standards (which are due to be made more onerours), tighter controls on HMO, has already changed the tenancy regime, tightened up on Landlord Registration compliance, bringing in Min EPC bands with a target of Band C and has a Private Members Bill to be tabled in Rent Controls. And lower higher rate tax band than England. But we do have a Fitst Tier Housing Tribunal so not all is worse than England.

I'm not sure I will have a SNP candidate in Somerset.
