Top Five Questions relating to Whistletree consent to lease

  • Can you please tell me what Whistletree charge for consent to let out a room in my garden flat? Any answers are gratefully received.
  • My house had been let to students for three years between 2010-2013 while employed overseas. I have a letter dated June 2010 from my building society granting consent to let. In the letter it explicitly states that the consent to let is valid for "the remaining term of the mortgage". I have not changed product since the letter was issued. I now plan to move house and rent out my existing house. However, my mortgage advisor has suggested that the 2010 consent to let letter may not satisfy the new lender Whistletree for the property I intend to purchase.Can this be correct
  • We have a flat in Barnet which we acquired off-plan just over eight years ago. As the family is growing we require more space.

My query is, can we retain the repayment mortgage with Whistletree so we effectively paying off our loan on the property or must we to swap to a buy-to-let mortgage?
