Frequently asked questions relating to HSBC consent to lease

  • Colin (my husband) and I may need to rent out our Lewisham home for a while due to a new job. This will be for a limited period but possibly for as long as 6 years. Do I inform HSBC or am I best advised to remain silent?

  • I applied for consent but I did not get it as I did a remortgage in July but Woolwich does not give consent if mortgage is less than 6 months old. Now I am worried when 6 months is gone are they going to find some other criteria that will not be ok. On the other hand I can remortgage with HSBC but will they give me consent straight away?
  • We have a fixed rate mortgage with HSBC for 2 yrs and have been living in the house for just over one year. Due relationship issues I need to relocate so I would like to lease the place out. How can I get consent to let from HSBC?
  • How long after getting a new mortgage do I have to wait before I can seek consent to let from HSBC? To give some background I purchased my flat in Tower Hamlets 2 years ago and am currently on a three year fixed rate. I subsequently met a guy and now we are looking at moving in together. I am planning to get a better fixed term next June. I assume that I would have to hold off for at least half a year before I could seek consent to let. Is that correct?
  • I am looking to HSBC to issue me with consent to let out my home in Sutton. I am moving to Spain for 5 months for work.

  • I may potentially need consent to let from HSBC in the future with work. I am just seeing what the options would be if this was the case. Are there any time restrictions on how long you can let out a property with consent?
