No VAT rise for NLA Tenant Check

No VAT rise for NLA Tenant Check

A national tenancy referencing service has announced it will not be raising prices in line with the recent VAT increase.

The National Landlords Association (NLA) will not be raising the prices of its Tenant Check service following the increase in VAT to 21 per cent.

NLA chairman David Salusbury, said: "As landlords face an increasing amount of costs and the financial pressures brought on by the rise of VAT, the NLA Tenant Check price freeze will undoubtedly be welcome news for many landlords."

The service offers reference checks for landlords considering tenants, with instant online results.

Checking for risks such as undisclosed unemployment, county court judgements (CCJs) or bankruptcy, the service assesses the suitability of potential tenants.

The National Landlords Association is currently campaigning against a proposal that could affect the availability of property to rent in Portsmouth.

Portsmouth City Council wants to restrict planning permission for new shared houses, reducing the number of houses to rent for students, professionals and other tenants.

The association has written to councillors to oppose the plans.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800346513-ADNFCR
