Buy-to-let landlords set to suffer more regulation from the EU
New rules could mean buy-to-let mortgages are underwritten the same way as normal mortgages. And that would spell bad news for landlords.
If there’s one thing landlords can’t stand, it’s red tape. When the last government talked of launching a landlord register, to monitor the standards being offered by different landlords, there was uproar.
So it’s unlikely that a new directive from the European Union (EU) will go down too well with them.
