We have agreed to purchase a house in Catton. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Leeds Building Society 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 your lender is Leeds Building Society your lawyer must check the formal instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Leeds Building Society. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Leeds Building Society where a lease fails to meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Catton.
Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a house in Catton has been agreed to, what are the next steps?
The property agent will need to be informed of your conveyancing practitioner's details (make sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Call up Coventry BS or your broker and complete any relevant documentation. Coventry BS will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or seller to arrange a slot for the valuation to take place. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days to receive the mortgage offer. Coventry BS will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Catton.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Catton with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
