Top Five Questions relating to Barclays - Woolwich consent to lease

  • For the last few months I have been letting out my flat in Croydon. I didn't request consent to let.

I'm hoping to legitimise it now... basically continue leasing it but with consent. What are my next steps?
  • We have an existing mortgage with Barclays - Woolwich and need clarify if it would be possible to obtain consent to let out our studio flat in Southwark.

    The rationale for needing to let out the property are as follows: -

    • My wife and I will be moving to Hong Kong in January.
    • By renting out the property this will facilitate savings to support the migration process.
    • There is little merit from a monetary perspective to redeem the mortgage for a property which we are no longer living and by letting out the property this would be deemed as continuing investment.

    If Barclays - Woolwich agreed that we are able to proceed with renting we would suggest some financial commitments to include: -

    • Maintain paying the monthly mortgage payment directly from my current account.
    • Use an accredited letting agent who will provide a rent guarantee scheme as a further financial safeguard.
    • Provide our forwarding details for when we move.
