Worse still we’ve been horrified at the fallacies seemingly behind these cuts, especially when the Conservative Party had already acknowledged the need to urgently focus on giving back tenants the option of ‘direct payment to landlord’ to help them avoid damaging rent arrears.
This autumn will see a lot more discussion and debate about LHA, but we need this to be based on facts. That is why we’re asking LHA landlords to complete this short survey. We’ll be able to use the data show Government the real impact of these cuts, as their own assessment fails to recognise the true cost to landlords.
Understanding as much as possible about the challenges LHA landlords face, the way that they run their businesses and what impact seemingly small changes to LHA will actually mean for the one-million-plus LHA tenancies in the UK is crucial.
So please fill in the survey and send it to other LHA landlords you know.
