Skipton Building Society consent to let: Q and A’s

  • I will shortly be relocating to Australia. Rather than sell my house, I would like to rent it out, just in case things don’t pan out. My present mortgage is with Skipton Building Society. If I looked to refinance would a new lender see this as me looking to avoid a Buy To Let mortgage, of which there is very limited availability for 80% LTV, and therefore refuse my request for Consent to Let?
  • My husband and I have just sorted our rates for another fixed five years with Skipton Building Society. However, I went to an interview and basically I accepted the job offer in Haringey. I'm going to rent a one bed flat for the family in Southwark as we don't wish to sell the house whist there is a possibility that we come back within a couple of years.... We really don't know how things will work out. We have contacted Skipton Building Society but we would appreciate your point of view please. Is it possible to have a consent to let in that case as we secured a fixed 5 years rate we would not want to lose this rate.
  • I am looking for some feedback as to whether consent to let from Skipton Building Society is the best strategy for me. I acquired my property last March by porting an existing Skipton Building Society mortgage product. My fixed rate finished 4 months ago I'm currently considering moving in with a new partner. I don't want to sell my house yet as I'm unsure of whether the new move will prove successful. Would it be likely that Skipton Building Society would grant a consent to let based on me letting out my property on a short hold tenancy for 1-2 years and then I either commit to a buy to let product or sell it?
  • I are looking to lease out our one bedroom second floor purpose built maisonette in Barnet in July. I would like some guidance on what I need to do. I've just moved our Skipton Building Society mortgage to a fixed term and just need to understand the process and what information I'll need to get consent to let.
  • I would like to send the consent to let form by courier and wanted to know if Skipton Building Society have a regular mailing address I can use as couriers usually don’t accept deliveries to PO Box numbers.
  • When it comes to consent to let from Skipton Building Society am I obliged to advise them each time we get a new tenant and forward them a duplicate of the tenancy?
  • I want to buy a new house but can't afford to sell the current flat with a Skipton Building Society mortgage. Do you know acceptable terms for Skipton Building Society to grant consent to let? Is getting married and having children a sufficient reason to to ask for consent to let?
  • I'm mulling over a remortgage offer with Skipton Building Society and it's likely I will require consent to let during the fixed period. Are there any fees I should be aware of?
