· Some Lincoln landlords face bills of between £11,000 to £14,000 as Michael Gove, the Housing Minister, declared an attack on poor quality private rental homes.
· 2,069 Lincoln rental properties will require upgrading. The Government announced in their ‘Levelling Up’ White Paper last week, they plan to introduce a new minimum standard for private rental properties.
· Also, the White Paper wants every landlord in Lincoln (8,881 of you) to go on a Landlord Register and proposes the removal of Section 21 no-fault evictions. This could make it more difficult for you to get possession of your Lincoln rental property.
· Are these proposed changes another nail in the buy-to-let coffin for Lincoln landlords?
