Btl Landlords' Subsidy Quantified

Recommended Posts

From the Grauniad

Still haven't worked out how to post links on tablet, sorry. Story's on the front page of the website.

Generation Rent says private landlords get £26.7 billion a year from the taxpayer.

Except that ignores the biggest subsidy and main driver. BTL is 20% of housing stock. 13/14 housing stock capital gain approx £500bn so 20% = £100bn. Generous non-financial capital gains revenue forecast for 13/14 approx £1.5bn. 100 - 1.5 = Net £98.5bn. Add that to their £26.7bn then subtract the £9.06bn CGT 'they do not pay' = £114bn.

Could average it out to derive a per period accounting for ups/downs and new/existing owners, but principle and relative magnitude is much the same.
