I am buying a property in Headingley. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Co-operative be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Co-operative your lawyer must check the formal requirements outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Co-operative. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Co-operative where a lease fails to comply with these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Headingley.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Headingley. I have a mortgage offer with Bank of Ireland. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Headingley accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Headingley. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Leeds Building Society started?

It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Headingley conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to move forward with searches.
