Bank concerned it will be Boom and Bust again

BBC: Bank of England concerns over buy-to-let boom

Most of the growth in mortgage lending has been for BTL. BoE is concerned that there will be a stampede of Landlords to sell if / when prices stop rising.
Personally I think one of the biggest problems in the housing market is BTL mortgages. The first time I ever saw them mentioned was when I sold my house in 1999.

"The amount that landlords will be able to claim will be set at the basic rate of tax, which is currently 20%. The change will be introduced over four years from April 2017" So this is radical? Plenty of time to pay down/ease out if you are a BTL lanlord then.
It's the CONSERVATIVE party and their supporters who are the BTL landlords, ffs!
