Landlords upbeat about the buy-to-let market with many looking to buy more.
Around 86% of landlords said they thought demand for rented property would increase during the year or at least stay the same, and the same proportion said they were not planning to reduce the number of properties they had, with many looking to buy more.
Just 1% of those questioned were planning to sell up and leave the market altogether, according to Bradford & Bingley.
Just over half of landlords said they were investing in property for their pension, while 49% said their portfolios earned them more than pounds 15,000 a year. Terraced houses are the most popular choice for investors, with 52% having one in their portfolio, followed by two-bedroom flats at 48%.
The research was based on answers from 3,079 landlords who responded to a questionnaire in B2L magazine.
