Questions and Answers: Keystone Property Finance consent to let

  • Last year we bought our council house, in Wandsworth,recently valued at £240k. It's completely paid for from our own finances, unencumbered. We are prohibited from selling (without repaying back a significant amount of the discount) before five years have gone by. Regardless, we want to keep it as a investment property to rent out. We wish to release some equity via a Keystone Property Finance mortgage. Will consent to let be given?
  • I have a Keystone Property Finance mortgage on a flat I own, in Enfield. Last month, resulting from a change in my circumstances I decided to let out this flat, and rent an alternative property in a different area within same loc. The state of affairs that changed is that my partner moved in, and the flat is not big enough for us. I do not wish to dispose of the flat because the current market value is 20% less than when I bought the property in 2005. I applied to Keystone Property Finance for a consent to let which was turned down as they considered that I wanted to invest in the flat. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, as i am at the end of my tether. There is a sense of urgencyas there is a prospective tenant waiting for this consent to let and could withdraw.Please call me to discuss
