Apply for 65 % Godiva Mortgages mortgage on second property that I will consider to be my primary address? Is this possible?
  • In the coming months I plan to move house and I am wondering if I can get consent to let on my property then get a mortgage approval for the new house so I can effectively bid without being part of a chain and then rent my property out once I move. Is it likely that Godiva Mortgages grant consent to let for 12 months if they know I am looking to purchase a further property or only where one is relocating short term for career reasons?
  • I understand that this is a breach of Godiva Mortgages terms and conditions of mortgage if I let out my flat having informed that I intend to reside there.

What checks do Godiva Mortgages do and what are the chances that they are likely to do this? What are the consequences of not obtaining consent to let? From what I have read there is a possibility of Godiva Mortgages transferring my loan onto a BTL mortgage
  • My partner and I currently live in Melbourne and letting out our flat in Havering. This was unplanned but an opportunity came up and we took it. The rent we make on the apartment is insufficient to cover the mortgage so we send back funds each month to cover the difference. Earlier today our lender got in touch telling me that because the property is being let out and has been for nearly two years we will have to pay 1.5% interest in addition to our current mortgage rate. One option would be to sell the apartment but this will be difficult as I am on the other side of the world. Would it be possible to remortgage with Godiva Mortgages and get consent to let?
  • I have to send the consent to let form by courier and wanted to know if Godiva Mortgages have a regular postal address I can use as couriers ordinarily don’t accept deliveries to PO Box numbers.
  • I took a homeowner mortgage with Godiva Mortgages and with my circumstances changing massively in the last three months, can I obtain consent to let. What changes will affect me?
  • I have a house in Hounslow. I would like remortgage with Godiva Mortgages and either change to buy to let or consent to let. I'm still within the redemption penalty period so not sure if it would trigger the penalty payment?
  • Do you know whether Godiva Mortgages will accept rental income on consent to let for affordability purposes or does it need to be BTL ? Would Godiva Mortgages let me raise capital based on the rental income ?
