Landlords could expect to see an increase in the number of prime properties on the market this year - particularly so after the general election.

Estate agent Prickett &Ellis has said that the prime property market will "go quiet"during the election months as is typical.

People are busy worrying over the outcome of the event, senior partner at the firm Nigel Ellis claimed.

But once it is over and interest rates rise, there will be an influx of products on the market due to a "financial squeeze".

Currently, people are telling estate agents that there is not much property on offer thanks to low interest rates and a general worry from the public about their future, Mr Ellis said.

On Monday (January 4th) Primelocation.com noted that there were 10,000 vendors without agents marketing their homes last month.

It had previously reported that Yorkshire and the Humber saw the highest price growth of prime property in the UK during 2009.
