Finally the sale completed on my house in Duffield last December but our buyer keeps whats apping daily complaining that their conveyancer is waiting to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

Your conveyancer will review the deeds as conveyancing in Duffield will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain changes or need the consent of another owner.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Duffield. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Kent Reliance 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 Kent Reliance your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Kent Reliance. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Kent Reliance where a lease fails to comply with these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Duffield.
