The main obstacle for private landlords in the UK is the "lack of available mortgage finance", according to spokesperson for the National Landlords Association (NLA), Steven Hilton.

But if those involved in the buy-to-let sector can adapt to the market conditions, they will be able to make a success of their business, he stated.

Although the fundamentals involved in setting up a buy-to-let investment opportunity remain strong, the financial situation "impacts on landlords with a small number of properties right through to larger investors".

Mr Hilton's comments follow a report from the University of Nottingham, which singled out experienced landlords as professionals who are looking to capitalise on falling property prices by purchasing more homes.

The publication, dubbed We All Live in a Robbie Fowler House, indicated that some of these individuals were described as "vultures"by survey respondents.
