Sample questions relating to Penrith Building Society consent to let

  • I have a Penrith Building Society mortgage on an apartment I own, in Greenwich. This year, resulting from a change of personal circumstances I decided to let out the apartment, and rent another property in a different area within same loc. The state of affairs that altered is that I started cohabiting with my partner, and the flat is too small for our needs. I do not want to try to sell the flat because the current market value is 20% less than when I purchased the flat in 2005. I wrote to Penrith Building Society for a consent to let which was refused because they determined 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 I have a prospective tenant waiting for this consent to let and may look elsewhere.I look forward to hearing from you
