Fewer landlords experiencing buy-to-let arrears

"It is encouraging to see the total number of buy-to-let repossessions remain a small percentage of the market, at 0.46% of the total book, similar to the annual rate for the residential mortgage market.

"Clearly, the figures suggest the buy-to-let market is far more robust than originally feared. The Government should take note of this when considering whether regulation is really necessary. Rather than wasting effort on further legislation they should be encouraging lenders to get credit flowing again."
