Welcome to another edition of the Landlords Barometer, documenting all the trending topics for landlords and the private rented sector:

1. Budget hints at new tax break for landlords

2. House prices will plummet 35% in “no deal”

This lively discussion has had over 7,000 views and 90 responses … and counting.

3. Property Investor Panel debate de-brief: where is the PRS heading?

Watch our exclusive video interview where key industry commentators give their views.

4. Ireland gets rid of their version of Section 24

Landlords are welcoming the news that Ireland is now offering 100% mortgage interest relief to attract private landlords back into the sector.

5. “Young Entrepreneurs Week” 2018 powered by Keller Williams
