We have agreed to purchase a house in Ferring. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Virgin Money where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Ferring.
