Sample questions relating to Hampden consent to let

  • My fixed rate mortgage is nearing reissuing with Hampden. The property has been sub-let for a few years and I think I need to come clean toHampden. My understanding is that I must apply for consent to lease, but bearing in mind that the property has previously been let out could they deny - insist I go onto a BTL product and even fine me? There is excellent equity - 30% LTV and have never missed any payments.
  • My question does not relate to consent to let, I was hoping that you have an address or telephone number for a dedicated Hampden help desk who processes consent to let applications. Hampden has a mortgage over my property.
  • Me and my wife and I may need to rent out our home for a while due to a career opportunity. As we will be away for no more than twelve months would we need a consent to let our home. We already have a Hampden mortgage. What costs are involved and is there a time limit on consent to let?
