Around 30 per cent of private rental sector landlords are still undecided about whether they will vote to leave or remain in the EU referendum.
From a survey of over 1,000 landlords the National Landlords’ Association has produced a fascinating regional breakdown:
London Inner; 45% Remain / 29% Leave
Scotland; 42% / 30%
East England; 38% / 40%
London Outer; 37% / 34%
South West: 35% / 36%
North West: 35% / 36%
Yorkshire/Humberside; 33% / 29%
West Midlands; 31% / 40%
South East; 30% / 37%
North East; 29% / 40%
Wales; 20% / 40%
The findings show that landlords are evenly split, with 35 per cent intending to vote leave and 35 per cent intending to vote to remain, the NLA says.
Landlords were also divided about whether EU membership would be beneficial to their future business prospects, with 53 per cent believing that EU membership would be beneficial, and 47 per cent believing it would be harmful.
Regionally, more landlords in London intend to vote to remain in the EU than anywhere else in the UK (45 per cent). By contrast, more landlords in the North East intend to vote to leave than anywhere else in the UK (44 per cent).
