I am buying a property in Barry Island. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Clydesdale be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook sets out minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease fails to satisfy these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Barry Island.

It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Barry Island bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Barry Island conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the lawyer is on the lender approved list, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
