Following the release of the 2015 Election manifestos over the past week, landlord insurance provider, Simply Business, has today released a visual guide to explain how the six main political parties’ policies will impact landlords and tenants, if implemented.

Simply Business has worked with industry expert Mark Smulian, a journalist specialising in local government, law and housing, to interpret the manifestos of: Labour, the Conservatives, the Liberal Democrats, the SNP, UKIP and the Green Party for the guide.

Speaking about the guide, Jasper Martens, Head of Marketing and Communications at Simply Business said:

“It's a simple mathematical fact that there are more tenants than there are landlords, and so politicians who are interested in winning votes will make their pitch to the former.

“The main parties vary in the attention that they give to the private rented sector, but for each the emphasis is very much on tenants, and so landlords will need to work hard to make their weight felt in the political process.

“With over 100,000 landlord policies in our care, we’re keen to arm the UK’s landlords with the information they need to make an informed decision when voting on May 7th.”
