Questions and Answers: HSBC consent to let

  • A friend of mine has rented her house off the same landlady for nearly 18 months. Over the course of the last twelve months my friend has received letters from HSBC (she hasn't opened them-it is clear from the envelope). At first she forwarded them to the landlady's address. I was a bit suspicious as none of her landlord’s mail was supposed to be going there. So I went to my friends house and called HSBC on her behalf. The gentleman I called at HSBC had a long list of queries, the landlady's details, information relating to the tenant and then said they were going to look into whether she had the right mortgage and if she didn't it was an offence without consent to let. What does this mean for my friend?
  • We have just sorted our rates for another fixed period with HSBC. Subsequently, I attended an interview and basically I accepted the job offer in Bromley. I'm going to rent a two bedroom flat for me and my family in Hounslow as we don't want to sell the house and moreover we might come back within a couple of years.... We really have no idea how things will work out. We called HSBC but we would appreciate your point of view please. How is it to obtain consent to let in that case as we just got a fixed 5 years rate we would not want to lose this rate.
  • I'm planning to remortgage my 2 bed flat, currently let out with consent to let from HSBC, onto a BTL rate as we are unlikely to be moving back into it now since we have our family home. So, I'm assuming I need a specialist broker for this and I am not really au fait with what is on offer in this area. Are you able to recommend an efficient broker service specialising in BTL?
