    Consent to let time? 8th Oct 17 at 4:59 PM
    Hi there,

    I wanted to know, how long does it take to get a consent to let from Halifax? We’re doing this t9 move to a new house and the mortgage expires in feb 2018. I think it’s required for a new mortgage.

    Good luck with that when your mortgage deal ends, you'll likely be stuck on their standard variable rate. If I were you I think I'd be looking around for a let to buy mortgage which is used to allow you to rent out your existing house and, if needed, allow you to release equity to use towards a deposit for a new house to live in.

    Hope you can afford to pay two mortgages without any rent coming in?
