Independent research commissioned by Paragon Mortgages, and carried out by BDRC Continental, has reported a continuing return of landlord confidence.

Landlords were also asked to describe their expectations for the private rented sector for the coming quarter, 57% said their expectations were good or very good, further demonstrating their increasing confidence.
