Builders in Liverpool may be called in to prepare homes for renting as landlords look to take advantage of an upsurge in tenant demand.

Some 40 per cent of residential property owners have said they are seeing more people looking to lease, while only 4.5 per cent have reported a fall in interest.

Between April and June, banks lent £3.5 billion to landlords – which represents the highest figure since 2008.

This could result in a spate of movement in university towns, as individuals look to provide enough options for students.
