    Residential mortgage; can L sub-let without consent?

    Dear All,
    I let out my property 4 months ago after it failed to sell. I called my bank to inform them that the property was being put on the market as a let and they said I should call when the property is actually let out and from that date I would be given 12 months of grace to stay on my tracker mortgage and then I would have to switch to a BTL. My problem is that my tenant (a reputable company) wants the property for a foreign manager for 2 years and I have no concerns about their ability to pay. The rent payment is double my total repayment mortgage as my interest rate is almost zero so obviously I would prefer to stay put on the tracker as I cannot see any dramatic rise in rates for the next 2 years. Am I better keeping quiet and paying HMRC tax on the whole amount of yearly rental income less expenses (except mortgage interest) or is their a way of calculating the annual interest without alerting the bank. I have read on the forums that you can request an annual statement detailing the interest and repayment portions of your mortgage payments but I am worried that this would "remind" the bank that the house has been let. How can I get round this. I am pretty miffed at having to further enrich a bank which would have gone to the wall if it had not been bailed out by tax payers. Thanks for any advice offered.

    So, I would be interested to hear what / when the next recession might be. There are a lot of professionals predicting one. They say there’s been one every 17 years, making the next one around 2025.

    FWIW most of the inflation now has been created by the printing of money by the central banks.

    Inflation rising has been talked about for a few years and finally its hit the developed countries.

    creating money out of thin air was never going be at no cost

    Because they can't process their business.
    For most legal firms a new client is someone who has a pressing need for some work to be done, now.

    There is a huge shortage of solicitors and other legally trained people.

    Do you have a friend ,relative or workmate who has used a solicitor in the last year or so who would be able to recommend one to you? Bear in mind that your solicitor does not have to be located right next to the property you wish to buy. I would be careful when comparing on price alone as much of the...
