The buy-to-let market is showing signs of resilience following the UK’s vote to leave the EU in June this year. Over half of landlords are confident that Brexit and the general economic uncertainty surrounding Britain’s withdrawal from the EU will not negatively impact their buy-to-let investments.

At a time when borrowing costs are low, landlords feel they can still benefit from making such an investment.
