  • My better half and I plan to return to Floridain Month, possibly short-term but potentially longer term. I'm in the process of writing to Harpenden Building Society to obtain consent to let out the property (we have already found tenants). I have had a mortgage with Harpenden Building Society for Six years and I have never had any arrears. Harpenden Building Society tell me, that even if they consent to the letting, that this will be a temporary arrangement for a period of twelve months. What happens after one year?

    • Maintain paying the monthly mortgage payment by standing order.
    • Instruct an accredited letting agent who will provide a rent guarantee scheme as a further financial protection.
    • Provide our forwarding address for when we emigrate.
