If your client is planning to support the government scheme to house Ukrainian refugees we are supporting them by making the process as simple as possible.

Your client will not be required to notify us if they are providing:

  • a room(s) in their own their home (current limit of 2 lodgers will not apply)
  • a residential property they own (no need to request consent to lease but they will need to obtain a tenancy agreement).

It is important they consider whether by providing this support they are still able to afford their own household bills, pay their mortgage and it doesn’t put them in financial difficulty. They may wish to look at any government guidance issued.

Your client should also check with their building/content insurance provider to see if they need their consent.

Our tracker rate mortgages are linked to Bank of England bank rate (also known as Bank of England repo rate). Details of this rate can be found on the Bank of England website at
