We have agreed to purchase a house in Filey. A rare 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?

As your lender is Leeds Building Society your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Leeds Building Society. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Leeds Building Society where a lease does not satisfy these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Filey.

How does conveyancing in Filey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Filey approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Filey usually purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Filey or who has acted in the same development.
