Over 75 per cent of landlords questioned believe lenders are not doing enough to support them when it comes to getting access to additional finance.
David Whittaker, managing director at Mortgages for Business, explained: "Landlord appetite for buying residential property is high. This will support the private rented sector and ease the strain on would-be renters chasing too few properties."
