Spring Budget 2023

Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, delivered what he termed as a “Budget for Growth”, which is “long term & sustainable”.

John Blackwood, SAL chief executive, commented:

“The budget statement was a missed opportunity. Though the Chancellor spoke of growth he did nothing to encourage investment that is necessary if the private rented sector is to provide much needed rented homes.

The current tax system, under which landlords are penalised for providing homes to rent, only makes it tougher for many renters to access good quality rental properties. Without a comprehensive review of how the sector is taxed, supply and demand issues will only become more acute.”
