Overseas and need to switch from Resi to Buy to Let

Hi Paul,

I was in the same situation as you a couple of years ago. When I phone the lender they didn't even ask me when I left the property. They assume you are leaving right now, and they can't really check anyway. They just let me let it at my current resi mortgage, at a fee of about £300.

Lenders are all different and you can't really know what they can offer you before you speak to them. Whether they'll let you switch to buy to let or no, only they know. It depends on some parameters that matter to them at this point in time. Then at other times it will be different. There is only one way to know, speak to them.

Good luck.... Read More

Would you ask freeholders permission if you were me?

David,

my experience is very similar to yours. Not all gas fitters will do the same type of thing, and also, their prices vary wildly. I recently asked for a quote for a boiler replacement from 4 gas fitters who I have worked with before. The quotes ranged between 1,000 and 3,200 for absolutely the same work. Actually the lowest quote I got from the the guy with most experience. Nothing beats asking for quotes.

Best,

Hi Rob,

I am a bathroom fitter and have seen many flues fitted without having to access the wall from the outside. Boilers nowadays come with a special collar for this purpose. It may not work in your case but I am very surprised that your gas engineer didn't even run this past you. If you open the pdf below, at the bottom of page three, in fig. 4 called 'fitting the flue from inside' you will see how this works.

Hi Rob,

Normally you can install a boiler without having to get to it from the outside. I could recommend you an excellent guy who is not expensive who could take a look at this and give you a quote. However, he lives in London and I don't know where you are.

Good luck.
