Petition launched to reintroduce full mortgage interest relief and to drop the 3% stamp duty surcharge

Written by Allen Walkey on - Breaking News -

Petition launched by Mark Homer to UK Government and Parliament.

Reintroduce full mortgage interest relief and to drop the 3% stamp duty surcharge.

Petition details as shown on Government website:

‘We call on the Government to reintroduce full mortgage interest relief and to drop the 3% stamp duty surcharge which is increasing homelessness by driving many landlords out of the sector, meaning tenants have less choice and higher rents.’

‘There will still be a continuing growth in demand for housing and a significant part of this will have to be available through private landlords. It is time to review the tax changes on buy-to-let landlords. It’s clear that the availability of rental property has decreased and rents have risen markedly. We call for policy change to end these disastrous tax policies which cause such profound suffering.’

The petition runs until the 14th November 2018, link to Petition
