Una ricerca condotta dalla Residential Landlords Association ha mostrato come il 63% dei proprietari di immobili in affitto stia considerando giá da ora di aumentare gli affitti per far fronte alle misure penalizzanti previste dal Summer Budget 2015.
Measures to be introduced by the Treasury following the 2015 Summer Budget could prompt a spate of rent rises, that’s according to new research by the Residential Landlords Association (RLA). Initial findings from a survey of landlords indicates that 65% of landlords are considering increasing rents. The measures to be introduced and announced by the Chancellor indicate that (1) Mortgage Interest Relief for residential landlords will be restricted to the basic rate of income tax, and (2) the blanket 10% wear and tear allowance normally applied to fully furnished accommodation will no longer be allowed. Although the mortgage relief measures will be introduced gradually over a 4-year period from 2017 and the scrapping of the wear and tear allowance will start after April 2016, both these measure are likely to have an impact on the profitability of buy-to-let.
