Frequently asked questions relating to Coventry Building Society consent to lease

  • Colin (my husband) and I may need to let our Lewisham home for a while due to me taking a sabbatical. This will be short-term but possibly for as long as 2 years. Should I tell Coventry Building Society or am I best advised to keep schtum?

  • A friend of mine has been renting her house off the same landlady for almost 18 months. During the last year my friend has received letters from Coventry Building Society (she hasn't opened them-it is clear from the envelope). Inititially she reposted them to the landlord’s address. My suspicions were aroused as none of her landlord’s post was meant to be going there. So I went to my friends house and phoned Coventry Building Society on her behalf. The gentleman I spoke to at Coventry Building Society asked all sorts of queries, the landlady's name her current address, information relating to the tenant and then said they would investigate whether she could legallylet out the property or if it was an offence with no consent to let. Should my friend be worried?
  • Am with Coventry Building Society and wonder if I am duty bound to notify them if we no longer live in my house. I believe that they could load the interest rate if we move and rent it out but it's far from clear what the change would be. If I decide to let my house out and seek consent to let how would the payments increase?
  • I have been serving in the Royal Air Force for five years and planning to buy a property using a Coventry Building Society mortgage. I would like to obtain consent to let this house to my sister.

  • We are about to buy a property and plan to live in it once we have refurbished but we may need to let the property out but not clear on what the rules are on consent to let from Coventry Building Society?
