We have agreed to purchase a house in Edenbridge. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nottingham 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 Nottingham your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nottingham. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Nottingham where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Edenbridge.
