  • Having spent 17 years in the capital, I'm considering relocating to be closer to family. We've only been homeowners for the last two years and about to remortgage with Bank of Scotland. In the relocation destination, we are be looking at a 4 bedroom property around the £350k mark. I would preferably like to retain my existing flat. Could I ask for Consent to Let from the proposed new mortgage provider Bank of Scotland. If granted what are the likely requirements?
  • My house had been tenanted for three years from 2009-2012 while living Amsterdam. I have a letter dated June 2010 from my lender granting consent to let.

I now plan to move house and rent out my existing house. However, my IFA has suggested that the 2010 consent to let letter may not satisfy the new lender Bank of Scotland for the house I intend to buy.Can this be correct

As a backup plan I can remortgage with Bank of Scotland but will they give me consent straight away?
