We have agreed to purchase a house in Bulwell. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Coventry BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Coventry BS your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease does not comply with these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Bulwell.

I am employed by a reputable estate agency in Bulwell where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales derailed due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given conflicting advice from local Bulwell conveyancing firms. Can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
