George Osborne announced plans to cut Mortgage Interest Relief on buy-to-let homes in his summer budget, essentially taxing income rather than profit.

With the 2016 budget just a week away we have been asking our members to lobby their MPs to challenge the plans and are asking that the new rules are applied to new borrowing only. In all 145 letters have been sent.

RLA chairman Alan Ward has recorded a video explaining the impact of the changes and letting landlords know what they can do to fight the plans.
