We have agreed to purchase a house in Iver. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Kent Reliance be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Kent Reliance your lawyer must check the formal requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Kent Reliance. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Kent Reliance where a lease does not comply with these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Iver.
