Common questions relating to Cumberland Building Society consent to lease

  • I currently let out my flat in Tower Hamlets. I didn't request consent to let. I moved to Amersham for work and was unable to cope with the traveling but was worried that Cumberland Building Society would charge me silly money so I decided to take the risk. I'm hoping to legitimise it now... basically carry on letting it but with consent. Can you offer any advice as to how I go about doing this?
  • We just received consent to let from Cumberland Building Society. After some effort, Cumberland Building Society have issued me with ‘consent to let’ confirmation . There is reference to an assured shorthold tenancy. What is that?

  • I am contacting you on behalf of a relative who has a mortgage with Cumberland Building Society. He asked me to find out if there is a charge for granting consent to let? He has been offered a job abroad and would like to rent out his place in the meantime.
  • The likelihood is that I will have the opportunity to work overseas in a couple of years. I am therefore possibly scaling down to a newer flat in Hounslow which I could rent out with less difficulty as and when required. The intention is to retain half the equity in the new flat which would be my home for a while. My current lender will only issue consent to let for 12 months. I expect to be renting it out longer term and not informing them could land me in a whole heap of problems. BTL seems inappropriate given that I will be living there, maybe for 2-3 years initially. What product should I be seeking, and from whom? Would, for example, Cumberland Building Society give consent to let for an open ended period?
