Frequently asked questions relating to Harpenden Building Society consent to lease

  • I am looking to emigrate to Beijing . Rather than finding a buyer, I would prefer to let my existing property out, just in case things turn sour and I decide to come back in a couple of years. My current mortgage is with Harpenden Building Society. Would I be able to refinance with another mortgage provider on a much lower interest rate then apply for Consent to Let once the re mortgage is in place?
  • I have had consent to let by Harpenden Building Society for a while now but they now want to speak with me and I expect their plan will be to get rid of me. Do you have any suggestions as what I can do next?
  • The plan is to move in with my partner and I have let my property out to two students on a twelve month tenancy. I am now applying for consent to let from Harpenden Building Society but what if they refuse. I can’t renege on my contract in terms of backing out of renting the students as the paperwork is finalised. On the flip-side Harpenden Building Society could sue me for contravention of contract i.e. letting it out without consent to let.
  • We are currently in Hong Kong and letting out our property in the UK. This is not something we planned but an opportunity arose and we took it. The rental income is insufficient to cover the mortgage so we transfer money each month to make up the difference. Yesterday our lender got in touch informing me that because the property is being let out and has been for almost four years we will have to pay 1.5% interest in addition to our current mortgage rate. One option is to sell up but this will be far from easy as I am on the other side of the world. Would it be possible to remortgage with Harpenden Building Society and get consent to let?
