RLA urges Landlords to lobby their MP before 8th March
Posted on 01/03/2017 by Sulgrave Estates
The Residential Landlords Association (RLA) is urging landlords to lobby their local MP over taxation changes announced by the now former chancellor George Osborne in 2015.
The Association is campaigning against the government over the proposed changes detailed in Clause 24 of the Finance Bill relating to the proposed removal of mortgage interest relief, which will be phased in from April.
The trade body wants landlords to contact and visit their MP over these changes and explain to them the damage that they will cause both for tenants and landlords.
The campaign is timed to run in the days leading up to Chancellor Phillip Hammond’s Budget Statement, due on 8 March.
Sulgrave Estates also urges all landlords to email or write to their local MP before 8th March saying how the changes will affect them and the rental market in their area generally. We have a greater chance of success the more landlords can do this.
