The posts here are cynical. I am sure if they were put by a Labour minister, then they would be looked at objectively.
Joe: As a hazy recollection, annexes can only be used by family members, they cannot be sublet to third parties.... Your posting is a bit OTT!!
(And Joe can you acknowledge you read my reply to your posting on the HMO Landlords in Camden...).
Although, I welcome the government decision to remove red-tape, I think households with annexes or granny flats should pay higher council tax.
