Private landlords are most concerned about regulation than other issues, it has been revealed.

Landlords were polled by Paragon Mortgages, who found that 58 per cent were worried about the rules on how they must run their businesses this year.

Some 50 Acts of Parliament have already governed landlords in the past and there may be more, it was claimed.

Managing director of the company John Heron said: "It is not surprising that regulation tops the list of landlords' concerns for the year. They already have to comply with a myriad of regulations."

Deposit protection, energy performance certificates and multiple occupation are all issues which currently affect private landlords, he explained.

Other matters which were concerning those polled were money worries, such as wondering how to fund property purchases in 2010 and tenant retention, which bothered 32 per cent of landlords.

According to, an Act of Parliament will create a new law or change an existing one. It becomes applicable to the whole country, or parts of the UK.
