Yes, but the alternative means fewer houses to rent, and therefore prices for renters are higher. Which is worse when there are already too many owner-occupied houses.
"And because landlords have to make a guaranteed return - or they lose the property - rents are higher too."
Well, having no tenant certainly does not give you a guaranteed return.
Now you may argue that banks should not be allowed to demand a guaranteed return. But to talk about banning buy to let seems crazy.
