Energy scheme benefits landlords
WITH energy costs rapidly spiralling, landlords should remember that their bank balances can benefit if they act now to make their properties more environmentally friendly, according to Carolyn Milburn, associate partner at George F White.
From now until 2015, private landlords who make energy saving improvements to their properties can reduce the amount of tax they pay through the Landlord’s Energy Savings Allowance (LESA).
LESA is an allowance not a payment and can be claimed by individual landlords who rent out residential property in the UK and abroad. Contact Carolyn Milburn on Tel 01388 527966 or visit www. georgefwhite.co.uk
