I had to leave my flat for family reasons, so am now based in another part of the country. At first I attempted to sell the flat, but prices were depressed, which meant I was in negative equity. This was a couple of years ago in 2011, the value has increased and has given me time to accumulate savings. 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 Furness Building Society that I have been letting without consent to let? I appreciate that I shouldn’t have done this, but circumstances left me with limited options. Have I committed a criminal offence?
