  • I have to move my daughter’s school by mid-September and move to a new area. I don't have time to find a buyer for my house.The only way I can see of doing it is to lease my house out. Currently I have buildings and contents insurance. Am I obliged to take out a different insurance? What should request from Manchester Building Society regards to consent to let?
  • I obtained consent to let from Manchester Building Society two yrs ago but never used it and subsequently refinanced with another bank. I recently asked for consent to let. I was informed that it would be given since I met the criteria. Yet recently got a communication advising me that I must provide a letter from the DWP evidencing that that are aware of my current situation before they can provide consent. They said this is policy but I have not been able to find these conditions on their site. I did complain about the insinuation that I might intend to continue to claim help with interest from the DWP whilst receiving rental on the property. They apologised and offered to deposit £25 in my account . However i still am unable to locate this term and condition and i feel this is otherwise inappropriate I want to let my property as a way of releasing me from redress to social benefits not in order to discontinue claiming
