Zoopla add their support to Raise the Roof

Raise the Roof has been running for just over 48 hours now and we’ve already got close to 400 signatures for our petition.

We’re also getting welcome support from those in the property industry, including who got in touch to add their backing.

Nicholas Leeming, Commercial Director of, commented:

“The Rent a Room Scheme was designed to help homeowners, but it needs to move with the times. Raising the income threshold is a common sense move that would encourage more people to rent out a spare room, helping homeowners cope with household bills and mortgage costs, as well as boosting the amount of affordable accommodation on offer to renters. Rather than encouraging homeowners to rent out a room, the current arrangement also discriminates against landlords in areas where the housing need is greatest – such as London – by piling on a tax burden. is supportive of’s Raise the Roof campaign – supporting homeowners even if household bills go through the roof.”

Thanks to all at Zoopla for their support (and their help with information while we were preparing to launch). To add your support please sign the petition and help us help homeowners get a fairer deal.
