Sample questions relating to Leeds Building Society consent to let

  • I have a Leeds Building Society mortgage and have been letting out my apartment minus consent to let, making me in contravention of my mortgage Ts and C’s. I think that they have found out that I am not living there. What negotiating options are available if I fail to sell it before they are on notice that I am in breach of my terms and condition?
  • I need to decide what to do ie let or sell. The property has a mortgage against it with Leeds Building Society (with quite a bit of equity). I want to purchase and live in a second house but keep my old house and rent it out. What is the best way to fund a second mortgage without selling my old property and using the equity as a deposit for the new property. Is there anyway I can change my old mortgage to a buy to let mortgages or obtain consent to let and take on a second mortgage without having a deposit to put down.
  • I have found myself in the accidental landlord category and without consent to let from Leeds Building Society. I had to vacate my apartment for career purposes, so now live in another part of the country. At first I tried to sell the flat, but prices were depressed, resulting in negative equity. This was a couple of years ago in 2011, which has since seen the property price increase and has given me time to save. I am in now in a position where I could convert to a BTL mortgage and would like to remortgage at the same time. My concern is, will changing mortgage providers possibly alert Leeds Building Society that I have been letting without consent to let? I appreciate that I shouldn’t have done this, but circumstances wouldn’t allow me to do anything else. Have I committed a criminal offence?
  • How many months after getting a new mortgage do I have to wait before I can seek consent to let from Leeds Building Society? To give some background I bought my apartment in Tower Hamlets nearly two years ago and am currently on a three year fixed rate. I subsequently met my partner and now we are looking at moving in to his place. I am planning to get another fixed term next July. I presume that I would have to wait at least 6 months before I could seek consent to let. Is that correct?
