I am buying a property in Ellesmere. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. TSB have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with TSB your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to TSB where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Ellesmere.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Barclays are being difficult. The Ellesmere solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Barclays are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Ellesmere benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could affect my mortgage with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Is this normal?.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Ellesmere is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Ellesmere are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ellesmere you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ellesmere may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
