Penrith Building Society consent to let: Q and A’s

  • A friend of mine has let her property off the same landlady for nearly one and a half years. Over the course of the last twelve months my friend has received letters from Penrith Building Society (she hasn't opened them-it is clear from the envelope). For the first half a dozen she forwarded them to her landlady's address. My suspicions were aroused as none of the landlady's mail was meant to be going there. I decided to go to my friends house and called Penrith Building Society on her behalf. The gentleman I called at Penrith Building Society asked all sorts of queries, the landlady's details, information on the tenant and then said they were going to look into whether she could legallylet out the house or if it was an offence with no consent to let. Should my friend be concerned?
  • I have a home loan with Penrith Building Society on a property and I intend to find a tenant for it out and rent another property due to changes in personal circumstances - I want to move to a different area, and to live in a larger property with my fiance.

I find myself at risk since I am already committed to the new property and would have to pay both Penrith Building Society and rent payments, which could expose me financially. The matter needs to be addressed soon as a potential tenant is waiting
