Bank of Scotland consent to let: Q and A’s

  • My fiance and I may need to lease our Islington home temporarily due to a new job. This will be for a limited period but possibly for as long as 2 years. Must I notify Bank of Scotland or do I remain silent?

  • I have just been presented with a once in a lifetime job opportunity for 9 months in New York. I do have sufficient savings to cover the monthly Bank of Scotland mortgage however the block insurance stipulates that the property must be occupied in order not to be invalidated. Last December the roof had some leaks that were repaired. Should there be any problems through the winter months I would find it hard to cover the remedial works. How likely is it that I will get consent to let by Bank of Scotland for the period I am overseas?
  • We have a fixed mortgage with Bank of Scotland (with just under two years remaining) but due to redundancy want to move away from London (actually to a new job in Belgium) and so want to rent the property out. We don't want to have the expense of the penalty cancellation of existing mortgage and understand that some lenders are content to grant this 'consent'...what is the policy adopted by Bank of Scotland?
  • My husband and I may have to rent his property out. I am aware that I must obtain consent to let from Bank of Scotland. We plan on joining a landlord association should we decide to let the flat, but which of the two should we join? We've come across the RLA and National Landlords Association.
  • I am looking to Bank of Scotland to grant consent to let out my home in Lewisham. I am moving to India for 6 months on a secondment.
  • I have a consent to let letter that I have obtained from my management company. I presume I need to send this with a letter to Bank of Scotland with a view to being given consent to let from them. What address shall I mail it to?
  • My OH and I would like to obtain consent to let on a house where we have a mortgage with Bank of Scotland. If issued, how long would consent be given for? In asking for consent to let from Bank of Scotland are we running the risk of them forcing us to change deal to B2L
  • I need to contact Bank of Scotland to enquire about renting out my house. Will they send a document to me. Is there a form I can download?
