The Residential Landlords’ Association has been assured that the Government has no plans to abolish council tax exemption for students.

In a concise letter to Simon Gordon, the RLA’s Government consultant, dated the 7th January 2013, Brandon Lewis MP, the DCLG Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, noted the RLA’s opposition to the removal of student exemption from council tax and stated, “I can assure you that the Government has no plans to abolish the council tax exemption for students.”

The RLA had previously contacted Mr. Lewis concerned at rumours circulating in the private rented sector that the exemption was to be scrapped.
