SWLA Meet with Luke Pollard MP

Posted on July 14th, 2023 -

Luke visited our office on 29th June for meeting with Iain Maitland (SWLA President) and Steve Lees (SWLA Chair) to discuss all things housing. Many discussions were had, mainly highlighting the lack of housing and the reasons for that –

  • Landlords leaving the market – mortgage costs, tax changes, utility bill increases
  • MEES and minimum spends
  • Renters Reform (and removal of Section 21)
  • Rents and LHA Rates

What can we do? Luke heard our views and experiences and takes that knowledge forward for future meetings and discussions in parliament. We look forward to seeing Luke again later in the year – and welcome all South West MPs to our office so we can advocate for landlords who provide quality housing in the Private Rented Sector.


SWLA Attend Landlord Event at Exeter Racecourse

Posted on July 7th, 2023 -

The Rent Smart Devon landlord open event was a brilliant afternoon/evening. We had a stand amongst other landlord related businesses and services – we caught up with many of our Exeter based members and spoke to lots of new members who were keen to sign up when they heard what we had to offer our members. Talks were held throughout the day – keeping attendees updated on Renters Reform, Landlord Tax Planning and more.

Thank you to East Devon, Exeter City, Mid Devon District and Teignbridge councils for putting on a lovely event.

If you missed this event – look out for the next one! We will let our members know where and when……
