Top Five Questions relating to Cumberland Building Society consent to lease

  • I have a residential property but I am moving with my girlfriend to a different city for work purposes and moreover close to her university. My preference is to keep my house but it is unlikely that I can afford a BTL rate. It will only be temporary -two years until my girlfriend completes her degree and I can sell, or move elsewhere. My mortgage is with Cumberland Building Society. Do you think they will grant consent to let?
  • My husband and I recently sorted our rates for another fixed period with Cumberland Building Society. Subsequently, I attended an interview and basically I accepted the job offer in Brent. I'm going to rent a one bed flat for me and my family in Croydon as we don't want to sell the house whist there is a possibility that we come back within a couple of years.... We really have no idea how things will go. We have contacted Cumberland Building Society but we would appreciate your take on the situation. How is it to receive consent to let in that case as we just got a fixed 5 years rate we would not want to lose this rate.
  • I have found myself in the accidental landlord situation and without consent to let from Cumberland Building Society. I had to vacate my apartment for work reasons, so now live in another part of the country. I originally tried to sell the flat, but prices were low, resulting in negative equity. This was three years ago in 2012, which has since seen the property price increase and has allowed me time to save. I am in now in a position where I could switch to a BTL mortgage and would like to remortgage at the same time. My concern is, will changing mortgage providers possibly alert Cumberland Building Society that I have been letting without consent to let? I am aware that I shouldn’t have done what I did, but circumstances left me with limited options. Any help will be greatly appreciated?
