Frequently asked questions relating to Sainsburys Bank consent to lease

  • I am with Sainsburys Bank and just had to apply for consent to let, but it would be useful to know if they impose any conditions on the level of rental to be received?
  • Nine months ago my lender (not Sainsburys Bank) granted me with consent to let. This was subject to a provision that every 6 months they would add a fee of 0.5% of the remaining mortgage amount. Having the first couple of payments they have omitted to make the charge in recent months. Should I be worried that this means that my consent to let has been withdrawn.
  • I have a Sainsburys Bank mortgage and have been renting my apartment without consent to let, making me in contravention of my mortgage conditions. They may have suspicions that I am not residing there. Is my only option is to sell the flat before repossession?
  • I want a bit of initial guidance to consider if consent to let is a feasible option. I bought my flat 6 months ago by transferring an existing Sainsburys Bank mortgage product. My fixed rate finished 4 months ago. I'm currently considering moving in with a new partner who has his own property and mortgage also with Sainsburys Bank, which I would not seek to be added to. I don't wish to sell my property yet because I'm unsure of whether the new move will work out. I don't want to switch to a B2L mortgage yet for 2 reasons: 1) I need to find out whether letting my property is a feasible option for myself and 2) I need to find additional capital to satisfy the 65% LTV ratio required for a buy to let loan. Ideally I would like to obtain consent to let from Sainsburys Bank for 1-2 years in order to be more secure in becoming a possible landlord and to generate the capital. If at the end of the consent to let period I was unsure I would probably either sell my property or, depending on the new relationship working out, resume living there.
