The mortgage over my property is with Aldermore for my property in Nafferton. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?
You must advise Aldermore in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions.
