My wife and I purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Bodfari. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process include checks to determine if these alterations were previously refused?

I am purchasing a property in Bodfari. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to HSBC where a lease does not meet these conditions.
