Those with larger portfolios are more likely so seek a new mortgage this year; 44 per cent of landlords with more than 20 properties cited so compared to 14 per cent of those with one property. 

Landlords with complex properties are also expected to remortgage. Some 46 per cent of those with homes in multiple occupancy plan to do so, followed by 43 per cent with blocks of flats. 

The survey also found that landlords with four or more mortgages had a higher chance of refinancing this year with 39 per cent citing their intentions, compared to 24 per cent of those with one to three. 

Furthermore, 45 per cent of landlords with properties under a limited company vehicle are seeking to remortgage compared to the 27 per cent of those without a limited company.
