MPowered Mortgages consent to let: Q and A’s

  • I have a MPowered Mortgages mortgage on an apartment I own, in Greenwich. This year, due to a change in my circumstances I decided to rent out the apartment, and rent a house in a different area within same loc. The personal situation that altered is that my partner moved in, and the flat is not large enough for our needs. I would rather not sell the flat because the current market value is 20% less than when I purchased the property in 2007. I applied to MPowered Mortgages for a consent to let which was refused because they determined that my intention was to invest in the flat. The whole process was very stressful and frustrating. There is a sense of urgencybecause there is already a prospective tenant waiting for this consent to let and may look elsewhere.Please call me to discuss
  • We have just sorted our rates for another fixed five years with MPowered Mortgages. Subsequently, I attended an interview and basically I accepted the job offer in Lambeth. I'm going to rent a small flat for the family in Hillingdon as we don't want to sell the house and moreover we might come back within a couple of years.... We really don't know whether it will work out. We have contacted MPowered Mortgages but we would appreciate your point of view please. Is it possible to have a consent to let in that case as we secured a fixed 5 years rate we would not want to lose this rate.
  • My OH and I are just about to receive a mortgage offer from MPowered Mortgages for a garden flat. I have applied through Right to Buy. It is a 20 year mortgage. I am curious as to what is the main criteria MPowered Mortgages adopt in order to grant customers consent to let? Is consent to let based on the rental yield of a property?
  • Is it possible that mortgage companies (my home loan is with MPowered Mortgages) are adopting a more lenient approach towards consent to let? A mortgage adviser suggested that BTL mortgages are not regulated by the FCA whereas residential mortgages are. Therefore if I move from a residential to a Buy to let I am moving to a regulated product. He said that under the current regulation banks are wary of letting borrowers do this, which may explain why some lenders will allow borrowers have consent to let but not swap to a BTL mortgage. Is he right?
  • My OH and I have already been told to write a letter to MPowered Mortgages to obtain consent to let, I'm just trying to find some guidelines on the letter? What I should or shouldn't include?
  • My husband and I are applying to change mortgage provider to MPowered Mortgages for a fixed rate but the likelihood is that I will need to rent the apartment out for approximately one year. Do MPowered Mortgages consent to let on fixed rate home loans and if so, what are the costs.
  • I may potentially need consent to let from MPowered Mortgages in the future with work. I am just exploring what the options would be if this was the case. Is there a limit on how long you can let out a property with consent?
