Tax Changes and the Buy-to-Let Landlords

Over the next three years the amount of tax owed by many buy-to-let landlords will double or even triple as a direct result of the changes that are being phased in from April 2017. Landlords who have been enjoying four-figure net annual profits could sadly end up facing large losses – and it is thought that if interest rates rise, then this will make the situation even worse.

As a Landlord in the United Kingdom today, you can’t help but feel slightly battered by the Government and rather than being praised for helping to provide accommodation when there is clearly a shortage in the UK of decent housing, Landlords are being hit hard with tax changes and law changes.

If the Government keep demonising Landlords, we feel that more Landlords will have no choice but to sell up and invest their money else where and seeing as though the Government can not keep up with the demand for housing, it seems ludicrous that they insist on battering the Landlords, who are indeed only trying to help.
