I am purchasing a property in Calcot and Tilehurst. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Lloyds be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Lloyds your lawyer must check the formal requirements contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Lloyds where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Calcot and Tilehurst.

My wife and I are selling our property in Calcot and Tilehurst and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Calcot and Tilehurst conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Calcot and Tilehurst. We have lived in Calcot and Tilehurst for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)

How does conveyancing in Calcot and Tilehurst differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Calcot and Tilehurst approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Calcot and Tilehurst usually purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Calcot and Tilehurst or who has acted in the same development.
