Sample questions relating to Birmingham Midshires consent to let

  • I have a standard mortgage with Birmingham Midshires and will be joining the Royal Fleet Auxiliary in January. This is a civilian manned fleet run by the MOD. I will be at sea four months on and three months in the UK. Whilst away I want to lease out my house in Hackney and move in with my brother when on shore. If Birmingham Midshires refuse are there mortgage companies that will allow this?
  • I am looking for some initial feedback to consider if consent to let is a feasible option. I completed the purchase of my flat 7 months ago by transferring an existing Birmingham Midshires mortgage product. My fixed rate expired 4 months ago. I'm currently considering moving in with a new partner who has his own property and mortgage also with Birmingham Midshires, which I would not seek to be added to. I don't want to sell my property yet because I'm unsure of whether the new move will work out. I don't want to transfer to a buy to let mortgage yet for 2 reasons: 1) I need to find out whether letting my property is a viable option for myself and 2) I need to find extra capital to satisfy the 65% LTV ratio required for a BTL mortgage. Ideally I would like to obtain consent to let from Birmingham Midshires for 1-2 years in order to be more secure in becoming a possible landlord and to raise 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, move back to it.
