Consent to Let

Temporarily rent out your home

Things to know


  • A Consent to Let has an initial fee of £120. There is an additional annual fee of £120 to maintain Consent to Let on your mortgage.


However, you don't have to pay a fee if:

  • You’re a member of the British Armed Forces.
  • You’re living in tied accommodation as part of your employment.
  • You’re working abroad for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development office.

Letting the property

  • The property must be rented using an acceptable tenancy agreement, such as an assured shorthold tenancy.
  • Only one tenancy agreement can be used for one property.
  • You must also notify your building and contents insurer as this may alter the cover.

How to apply

Start your application through Manage your Mortgage.
