  • My house had been let to students for three years from 2010-2013 while living Amsterdam. I have a letter dated March 2010 from the building society granting consent to let. In the letter it clearly states that the consent to let is valid for "the remaining term of the mortgage". I have not changed product since the letter was issued. I now plan to move house and rent out my existing house. However, my financial advisor has suggested that the 2010 consent to let letter may not be sufficient for the new lender Platform Home Loans for the property I intend to purchase.Your view would be appreciated
