He goes on: "We need to reclaim the mantle of the party of home ownership and to do that we no only [need] to build more houses but ensure they are available for people to buy. Too many new houses and flats are immediately snapped up by buy to let landlords and never become available for first time buyers. Then he makes a reference to the announcement in the July Budget by Chancellor George Osborne that mortgage interest and wear and tear tax breaks for landlords would be restricted. Green writes: "I am delighted that we have taken the first steps towards removing the tax advantages for buy to let but I suspect there is much further to go (and therefore more political courage required.)"
