This is a general enquiry on behalf of my son who is at present in the midst of trying to purchase his first property.
The mortgage company have asked for proof of his residences over the past three years and he has been living at his present address for 2 years 10 months so just short.
However he cannot find a copy of his tenancy agreement for the address he lived at whilst at Uni.
Would his landlord have a copy of this as a friend of his is going to the city where he lived this weekend and said he would call and see the landlord and ask if it was possible for him to provide a copy. he also lived at home during the holidays but would this count?
Hiya - his landlord should have kept a copy - could you ring him to ask? If he hasn''t got it you could maybe ask him to write a letting explaining your son lived there and for how long.
Firstly I would ring the mortgage company to explain the situation as they''ll probably be happy with 2yrs10months! The same thing happened with my son and that''s what I did his mortgage company were fine about it he had only been in his current property just over 2yrs!
It''s just standard information they require tell him not to stress about it some companies only require a couple of years.
