The number of people interested in purchasing property in the UK has increased over the last couple of months, according to the latest figures.

Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) research indicates that there were 31 per cent more of its members that reported an increase in property enquiries, rather than a fall, during the course of March.

In February the organisation reported this figure as 21 per cent, which suggests there has been an upturn of ten per cent.

Private landlords will be among those interested in purchasing bricks and mortar. Indeed, various surveys in recent months suggest that he landlord market has grown since the end of 2008.

London and Wales are apparently the areas of the UK leading the way when it comes to new property enquiries.

Rics spokesperson Ian Perry said: "Buyer interest is starting to gain real momentum but will remain frustrated while mortgage finance is scarce.

"Surveyors are optimistic that transaction levels will increase, especially for those with the finance to purchase family homes."

Another spokesperson for the group, Jeremy Leaf, recently called on the government to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder.
