The UK could be set to see more private landlords join the buy-to-let market in the coming months if the latest industry analysis is to be believed.

Nigel Ellis, senior partner at Prickett &Ellis estate agent, said that there has been an increase in the number of investors looking to put their cash in property.

He claimed that it is mainly British investors who are monitoring the sector, as opposed to money men from abroad.

"We all know the Russians have gone and I don't get the feeling that there are any Europeans,"said Mr Ellis.

"It is the Brits that invest, or use their homes as more of an investment, and not the French or the Germans."

Investors appear to consider property as an asset that is always in demand in the UK, he added.

The Young Index's report on the first quarter of 2009 indicated that 99 per cent of investors are planning on keeping their properties for the next year.
