Frequently asked questions relating to Hampden consent to lease

  • Are you able to give me some advice on what the process is for applying for content to let, what do I need to do. I am thinking about taking a Hampden mortgage on a £140,000 property later this year. The intention is to hold the house as a second home but I would like to consider what options there are to let the property in the future. If our situation was to change the property would either be sold or rented.
  • me and my wife have just sorted our rates for another fixed period with Hampden. However, I attended an interview and basically I accepted the job offer in Brent. I'm going to rent a small flat for me and my family in Greenwich as we don't want to sell the house whist there is a chance that we come back within a couple of years.... We really don't know whether it will go. We have contacted Hampden but we would like also your take on the situation. Is it possible to obtain consent to let in that case as we just got a fixed 5 years rate we would not want to swap this.
  • I rented my house out for three years from 2009-2012 while living Amsterdam. I have a letter dated January 2010 from the building society granting consent to let. In the letter it explicitly stipulates that the consent to let is valid for "the remaining term of the mortgage". I have not remortgaged since the letter was issued. I now plan to move house and rent out my existing house. However, my IFA has suggested that the 2010 consent to let letter may not be sufficient for the new lender Hampden for the house I wish to purchase.Can this be correct
