Just to annoy the landlords more
Listening to Wave 105 while driving to and from work I keep hearing adverts for this. Personally I think this and the landlord stamp duty increases are a very shrewd attempt to repeat the popularity Thatcher gained with selling council houses off cheaply. For each landlord vote they loose they could gain ten votes from people who think the Government is finally on their side. What next. Right to buy for private tenants ?
