HMRC’s Twitter event fails to rouse landlords

A Twitter Q&A event organised by HMRC took place last night giving landlords an opportunity to get answers to their tax related questions.

Surprisingly the event turned out to be a damp squib with landlords failing to participate.

This morning we enquired about the session and HMRC responded tweeting:

“@MortgagesforBus Sorry for the delay in replying. Due to the low number of questions asked we will not be producing a Q&A document”

The only vocal landlord at the event was Vanessa Warwick, founder of Property Tribes. She tried to get the Q&A going by tweeting:

"#UKLandlords @HMRCCustomers Is this the end of BTL as we know it?"

She went on to post a link to her predictions for the future of buy to let, some of which made gloomy reading. Despite a retweet and a few followers marking her tweet as a favourite, no landlords joined the discussion.

Exasperated Ms Warwick, tweeted her concern over the lack of participants.

“Where are all the #UKLandlords? We should be telling @HMRCCustomers our concerns about tax changes!!!”

The lacklustre event raises the following questions:

Did landlords avoid the event because they don't have any tax concerns?

Was it simply an opportunity missed?

Do landlords actually use Twitter?
