At Goadsby we regularly update our portfolio of landlords about any changes to lettings legislation.
LANDLORDS – Are you ready for the new Electrical Safety regulations that come into force at the start of April 2021?
Investing in a buy-to-let property continues to have much appeal. Property has an excellent track record and for many it is recognised as a reliable investment that, over the longer term performs well.
Many of us have from time to time dreamt of escaping the rat race and moving to the coast or the countryside. The “commute” from the bedroom to the kitchen would also seem very much more appealing than sitting in an endless traffic queue or making your way to the station on a wet winter’s morning.
The Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) is a charge placed on all property purchases over £125,000 in England. From April 2016 the SDLT payable on the purchase of any second home or buy to let property increased by 3%.
At the time of writing a Landlord is still within their rights to refuse a pet in their property, however, this could all change if the Government gets their way.
