Landlords want red tape removed

Landlords want red tape removed

According to the National Landlords Association (NLA), landlords should not be held back by expenses and procedures.

The NLA spoke out after the government announced it will be examining shared housing planning regulations in order to ease the burden on property owners.

Chairman of the NLA David Salusbury said: "Unnecessary costs and red tape only serve to detract from [the contribution landlords make] and we welcome moves to tackle such disincentives to further investment."

The government proposed its intentions to develop the procedure for landlords to get planning permission on shared properties.

It will also design new rules that work effectively for local people looking to rent.

These rule changes will need to be tailored specifically to areas which have a high proportion of shared housing problems, the NLA added.

Earlier this week, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggested that the government's abolition of home information packs could have a positive affect on house prices over the summer.
