  • Is it correct that lenders (my home loan is with Hampden) have changed tune and are now adopting a more lenient approach towards consent to let? A mortgage adviser recently mentioned to me that BTL mortgages are not regulated by the FCA whereas residential mortgages are. Therefore if I transfer from a homeowner to a Buy to let I am moving to a regulated product. He said that under the current regulation banks are wary of letting borrowers do this, which may explain why some mortgage providers will allow borrowers apply for consent to let but not transfer to a Buy to let mortgage. Is this correct?
