Landlords gain unique insight into legal and tax issues

Landlords from across Essex and the South East gained valuable updates on the latest legal and tax changes when they attended an event at South Woodham Ferrers Council offices recently.

The event, which was hosted by Palmers, provided an overview of residential lettings, fraud, mortgage issues and Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Our legal team were also joined by Rachiel Cabrelli, a member of the Citizens Advice Bureau for Basildon and Thurrock, who offered guidance on the replacement of Housing Benefit with Universal Credit.

Robert Wybrow and Adam Cohen of Maynard Heady LLP Chartered Accountants also spoke at the event and shared their expertise on the latest taxation legislation affecting landlords.

Tim Steele, a Partner at Palmers, said: “There has been a boom in second home ownership and landlords in recent years, but with this, has come the desire for more knowledge on the tax and legal implications of property investment.

“This latest event provided an excellent grounding for experienced landlords and those who have no previous experience in the sector.

“Many of those who attended discussed how they had benefited from this insightful talk and I would like to thank our team and fellow speaker s for delivering such a riveting presentation.”
