Not so. An example may help. A three bed semi currently rented to 4 adults for ease let's say two couples. One of the couples decides to buy the house and start a family.If the houses move from the rental market to the private home market, the occupants will be moving also, with a similar impact on the demand side as the supply side.
You still have one property but only two bed spaces available. So from having four bed spaces available you now only have two as the couple who bought don't want to share. Where does the second couple live?
While the above is a simple example it can be extrapolated to the wider rental market if the State continues on with its anti landlord policies.
