Hello please post your full questions, it looks like it was cut short looking at the text posted so fare
What would you like to know about this please?
So, in short, this is a buy to let mortgage and you are living there?
Yes, but the mortgage application declared that you were not living there?
If the mortgage application that you signed says that you were not living in the property and that is not true then that is mortgage fraud.
I realise that you may have been given inaccurate advice but that is no defence if indeed you knew that the mortgage you sought was offered on the basis of a falsehood.
It is very surprising that they are interested in the matter though as in the late 90s almost everybody did this to achieve a mortgage. That was what caused the crash. I know too that there are some poor advisors around.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
Not if the mortgage contract that you signed asserted that you would not live there and it was your intention to do so. That is mortgage fraud.
