Top Five Questions relating to Metro Bank consent to lease

  • I have a residential mortgage coming up for refinancing with Metro Bank. The house has been tenanted for a few years and I now realise that I need to notifyMetro Bank. My understanding is that I can ask for a consent to let, but since the property has already been let out could they refuse - require that I go onto a BTL product or even fine me? There is excellent equity - 30% LTV and have never missed any payments.
  • My wife and I acquired a property in 2006 with the help of a housing association, I own half via bank loan and rent the other half. In January 2014 I purchased a new house. I rented out my first property and moved to my new home. I got consent to let from my mortgage company and I thought I had consent to let from the housing association. Earlier this week I was contacted by the housing association advising they had nothing on record to evidence I had obtained consent to sublet. What are my options?
  • My mortgage is with Metro Bank and wonder if I am obliged to disclose if we no longer reside in my house.

Should I decide to let my house out and seek consent to let how would the payments increase?
  • I am may soon need to apply for consent to let from my current mortgage lender Metro Bank. A colleague of mine said that he was granted ‘consent to let’ confirmation from a different lender where conditions attached to the consent referred to an assured shorthold tenancy.
