Comment on Mansion tax

From Jamie Lester, Head of Haus Properties

26/09/12

The Liberal Democrats proposed mansion tax does not appear to have been properly thought through. I am all for making sure people are paying the right tax, if it’s fair. Where I draw the line is taxing long standing residents who, through no fault of their own, live in a property that’s value has substantially increased over the years.

Has anyone thought about pensioners who cannot afford the new mansion tax – where will it leave them? Little money is coming in from their state pensions, their private pensions are worthless, saving accounts are not performing and now they have to pay additional taxes because their property has increased in value. This isn’t the route to take.”
