The Council of Mortgage Lenders reckons it is 56% year-on-year.
In numbers, it means that this March saw 16,200 loans to landlords compared to 10,400 in March last year.
There is growth in the market as a whole, too. The CML’s recent figures show increases in overall lending, lending to first-time buyers, and in the value of houses too.
CML director general Paul Smee said:
“All types of lending show positive year-on-year growth but the rate of increase is not as frenetic as at the end of 2013. Buy-to-let lending continues to recover and regain market share.
If you’re in the market for new property, or are looking to re-mortgage, drop us a line.
