  • I previously got consent to let from Bradford & Bingley in 2011 but never used it and subsequently remortgaged to a new lender. I recently asked for consent to let. I was told it would be authorised since their requirements were met. However I got a letter advising me that I must supply a letter from the DWP confirming that that are aware of my current situation before they can provide consent. They said this is policy but I have not been able to find these T&Cs on their site. I did complain about the inference that I might intend to continue to claim help with interest from the DWP whilst receiving rental on the property. They apologised and offered to deposit £35 in my account . However i still am unable to locate this term and condition and i feel this is otherwise inappropriate I want to let my property as a way of releasing me from redress to social benefits not in order to discontinue claiming
