Tom Jacob, director of product and marketing at Foundation Home Loans, said: “Enquiry and engagement levels have remained strong at the more professional end of the landlord spectrum throughout the many ups and downs experienced over the course of 2023, and this is an area which will dominate the BTL sector going forward.
“As such, we expect these latest rate reductions to prove extremely popular with portfolio landlords who are looking to take advantage of opportunities which continue to present themselves across the BTL sector.”
