New research from Paragon Mortgages has revealed that UK landlords want to add to their portfolios in Q4 2012 as reported on Mortgages’ research showed that terraced houses and flats are becoming increasingly popular with buy-to-let investors.

10% of landlords believe they will add to their portfolio in the last quarter of the year and professional landlords are more likely to buy than their smaller scale counterparts.
Managing Director of Paragon Mortgages, John Heron thinks that it’s positive that people want to purchase different types of property. He is of the opinion that this is a result of a “higher demand for larger rented properties from families who are choosing the private rented sector because they do not want to or cannot buy in today's difficult economic environment".
