If you are a renter then please read carefully because this will affect you as well. Matt You have my support 100% This removal of mortgage relief will not really affect me now but without it I would never of got on the property ladder. Having a home also allowed me to borrow to build my business and employ local people in turn who pay their stamps and taxes. Without the relief there would have been no home no business and no jobs. It is not fair on my children or the many people making the massive commitment to by a home to have this removed, plus interest rates that are low now could easily go up meaning a big increase in mortgage payments. This along with the cost of removing mortgage relief will mean many losing their homes. When they lose their homes the have to rent meaning the cost of rentals going up due to more demand, so even those that think they have no interest in this because they rent most certainly do!
