  • Permission to Let Question

    All,

    Long time viewer but first time poster - thanks for the help to date.

    Buying a new house and renting out existing one as would take too long to sell (if at all). Dont need to release equity so hoping to retain existing Woolwich +0.29% above base rate mortgage and get permission to let.

    Have received the permission to let forms and conditions on the back state that they will only agree to me letting if my long term plan is to move back into the house. This is not my intention - does anyone know if this would be enforced? What are my chances of them agreeing?

    Otherwise I am in a good position. House valued at 90+k, outstanding 48k, mortgage £305 p.m & rent about £525 p.m.

    What do you think?

    Thanks

    Do they specify how long-term?

      The exact wording is 'It must be your intention to re-occupy the property on expiry of the tenancy'.

      Could it be more aimed at not having the house sitting empty?

        I would have thought so. 'On expiry of the tenancy' could be years in the future, couldn't it?

        And the chances are you will re-occupy it for a few weeks after T moves out - eventually - before you sell it.

        You never know, you may come to love being a landlord so much that you never want to stop!

          Thanks for that. Was wondering if I was going to have to concoct an elaborate story about why I was only moving out for a short time.

          Has anyone had any experience of getting permission to let with the Woolwich?

          Surely they would be desperate for any excuse to get me off the 0.29% above base rate deal I am on as they cant be making any money off me.

            I'm guessing that they are allowing your mortgage rate to remain unchanged because they want to retain your business and they'd want to examine whether your fledgling letting business is viable (lending-wise) in their eyes. BTL mortgage rates tend to be higher, as you realise. If you don't intend to move back, they probably want to up your rate.

            By all means return the form saying you intend to re-occupy. Near the end of the tenancy, contact them again and formalise things properly.

              I'm surprised that you are even asking, it's obviously some kind of scam.

              Pb21
              Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

              Following on from my last post, had the tenant not informed the police and landlord at the time, they would have failed in their duty. I therefore would expect the tenant to foot the bill at the end of the tenancy or sooner.

              Criminal damage not connected with the tenant occurred during the tenancy and was reported as such at the time. It is not the case that the tenant caused or was responsible for loss of value beyond wear and tear.

              I'm just stating my view which appears to be backed up from sources other...

              If the tenancy ended and the lock was broken, it would be a loss in value beyond fair wear and tear and I'd expect the tenant to compensate the landlord for it.
              Same as any other damage.

              What's different about it during the tenancy?

              Yes, they have a duty of care but not the same responsibilities as a lease/freeholder.

              If I was the tenant, I'd refuse to pay. This is assuming I hadn't been grossly negligent and had reported the damage at the earliest opportunity to both the police and the landlord. I would expect a TDS...
