Minister to address NLA conference

Minister to address NLA conference

The parliamentary under secretary of state in the Department for Communities and Local Government, Iain Wright, will address the National Landlords Association (NLA) annual conference, the body has announced.

Mr Wright is a "champion" of the private rental sector and an advocate of buy-to-let as a positive contributor to the housing mix, the NLA said.

The conference will be held in Birmingham on November 29th, with other speakers including Dr Julie Rigg of the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York, who is shortly to publish a paper on the private landlord sector.

As well as the headline speakers, a panel of experts will take part in a 'Question Time' style debate on the industry.

The NLA recently commented that buy-to-let is far from dead, despite the nationalisation of buy-to-let mortgage lender Bradford & Bingley.

It pointed out that only between 25 per cent and 30 per cent of investors use such mortgages to buy properties.
