Scottish Building Society Consent to Lease Example Support Desk Enquires

  • I was thinking of renting out my cottage and make money from it while I am on vacation. It’s only for a fortnight. Is advanced consent to let from Scottish Building Society required?

  • If I were to let out my ground floor flat with consent to let by Scottish Building Society, what proof would be required of tenancy? If after twelve months I decided to let it on a series of holiday term lets, am I still required to supply evidence to Scottish Building Society, or will they be content provided i keep up with the payments? For example if I rent the rooms out separately at a later stage, is there any reason for Scottish Building Society to know and would they care?
  • I have a Scottish Building Society mortgage on an apartment I own, in Merton. Last month, resulting from a change in my circumstances I decided to rent out this apartment, and rent a house 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 dispose of the flat because the current market value is 20% less than when I acquired the property in 2007. I applied to Scottish Building Society for a consent to let which was refused as they determined that my intention was to invest in the flat. The whole process was very confusing. There is a sense of urgencyas there is a prospective tenant waiting for this consent to let and could pull out.Yours sincerely
