Landlords are being encouraged to have their say on the impact of the removal of Mortage Interest Relief (MIR) as part of a new research project by the University of Cambridge.

The RLA has commissioned academics from the university to conduct the research and will use the findings to provide evidence to the Government as part of our ongoing campaign to have these unfair changes reversed.

Over the past few years, the RLA has been actively campaigning against the Government’s tax changes, from the 3% levy on stamp duty to the removal of Mortgage Interest Relief.

Landlords have shared their experiences in our own research, and last week a report was published from RLA PEARL examining the impact of tax changes on the private rented sector.

This research found that more than two thirds of landlords plan to increase rents, as a result of government tax changes.

For this new research project to be a success we need every single RLA member to participate and make their voice heard. It is only together that we can make a difference and get these tax changes reversed.
