Buy to leave investors are directly contributing to the housing crisis and homelessness by buying properties (sometimes multiple) and leaving them empty. They are valuable housing stock which are not being utilised or lived in. 

At the moment, Buy to leave investors are fined a mere 50% extra of there council tax bill for leaving there property vacant. This is a meaningless fine and quite oftern it is cheaper to pay the fee than it is to rent out their property. 

This fee needs to be raised to act as a deterrent to stop these homes being left empty.
