Suffolk Building Society Consent to Lease Example Support Desk Enquires

  • Twelve months ago my building society (not Suffolk Building Society) issued me with consent to let. The condition was that every half year they would levy a charge of half a percent of the outstanding mortgage amount. Having the first couple of payments they have omitted to make the charge in recent months. This may be no more than a simple error but I am nervous that it would also mean I no longer have Consent to Let.
  • I am on a three year fixed rate mortgage with Suffolk Building Society which began in January. I will be moving out in August and have students ready to lease my flat. I need to get a letter from Suffolk Building Society granting consent to let until my term is up to allow me to start a new mortgage. What is the process for going about this?
  • My partner called Suffolk Building Society on Wednesday regarding consent to let. He is expecting a call back. We have put an offer in on a studio flat that has been provisionally accepted so we need to know how likely it is that we will get consent to let from Suffolk Building Society?
  • How long after taking out a new mortgage do I have to wait before I can seek consent to let from Suffolk Building Society? By way of history I purchased my property in Newham 2 years ago and am currently on a fixed term for 3 years. I since met my partner and plan to move in to his place. I intend to get another fixed term next October. I assume that I would have to wait at least half a year before I could request a consent to let. Is that right?
