Mortgage Solutions polled brokers on whether they expect more buy-to-let landlords to buy properties in 2019, with 66.1% replying negatively, whilst 31.3% predicted a rise.
Just two per cent of brokers cannot give an answer.
Dominik Lipnicki, director of Your Mortgage Decisions, said the stamp duty increase as well as taxation complications have had a negative impact on the BTL sector over the past few years.
He added: “We cannot predict anything until certainty over Brexit is reached. However, this is not the only key factor, as government is not encouraging people to buy properties.
