RLA urges landlords to lobby MPs over tax changes

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 have for both tenants and landlords.
