LPOC’S POLITICAL CAMPAIGN FOR OWNERS

The Political Campaign for Owners is an ongoing crusade by The Listed Property Owners’ Club to help owners of listed buildings and draw attention to the issues surrounding listed property ownership. The Listed Property Show is an ideal opportunity for owners who live day to day with the high costs and challenges of maintaining a listed building, a chance to express their views and find out more about the campaign.

VAT

The only financial aid given by central government to owners of listed buildings came via VAT. In simple terms, an alteration to a listed building for which listed building consent has been granted did not attract VAT. Unfortunately this rule was changed in the 2012 budget. Under certain circumstances there are savings still available for owners.

The understanding of this law is rather complicated but Dave Brown, LPOC’s VAT Advisor, will be available for free one-toone discussions to guide you through this process.

INSURANCE

The Club’s insurance suppliers have been particularly successful in creating a range of policies specifically designed for this market including protection from under valuation, unauthorised work by previous owners and cover during the undertaking of works to your home.

Members of the insurance team will be on hand at the show for one-to-one discussions.

LISTED PROPERTIES IN NEED

The Listed Property Owners’ Club has teamed up with Historic England and SAVE Britain’s Heritage to bring visitors to the show a compelling gallery of images. The gallery will depict listed buildings that have fallen into a state of disrepair but are now looking for new owners to give them a renewed lease of life.
