Atkinson McLeod - June 2014 Newsletter

In our first article this month we look at the Immigration Bill which has recently received Royal Assent. Industry bodies have voiced their opposition to the scheme, with some suggesting that the Government was wrong to ask landlords and agents to operate as an arm of the Border Control service.

In our second article we look at commentary made by Housing minister Kris Hopkins, agreeing that rent controls will not work.

Finally, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) are offering landlords online training in tax matters. The computer-based tutorials are intended to make it easier for landlords to understand when and how to pay tax on property they have let out.

As ever, if you’ve got any questions or feedback, please call us or drop us a line. Alternatively, just drop into your local branch of Atkinson McLeod.

Best regards,

Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
