Buy-to-let remortgaging activity soared by nearly two-thirds in February as landlords took advantage of falling rates.

Investors agreed more than 13,000 remortgage deals during the month – 62% more than in February last year, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).

In fact, remortgaging has been the main driver of increased activity in the buy-to-let sector in recent months, accounting for 59% of total advances in February, compared with just 27% in the homeowner space.

A total of £1.5bn was also advanced to landlords buying properties in February, a massive 67% more than in the same month of last year.

If you are keen to make your home more eco-friendly, solar panels might seem like a pretty extreme way to go about it. But actually, solar photovoltaic panels (as they’re officially called) are fast becoming more commonplace.

In the 12 months to December 2015, installations had increased by 29%, according to the latest government figures, bringing the total number throughout the UK to more than 842,000.

Contrary to popular belief, these devices don’t need strong sunshine to generate electricity for use in your home. In fact they are still working on cloudy and even rainy days, albeit with less effective results.

Here’s our handy list of pros and cons to help you decide whether solar panels are a good fit for your home.
