Also know, is it illegal to rent your house out privately?
It is legal to rent a property with no buy-to-let mortgage only if you own the property outright already or are a cash purchaser. However, if you do need a mortgage, then you have to be entirely honest with the lender as to what your intentions are for the property.
One may also ask, can I rent out my house on a normal mortgage? A The short answer is, no, it isn't possible to get a residential mortgage with an immediate consent to let. So unless you can persuade your current lender to extend your consent to let to a new residential remortgage – which I very much doubt – you'll need to re-mortgage to a buy-to-let.
