I am buying a property in Llandaff North. A rare 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?
As your lender is Virgin Money your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Virgin Money where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Llandaff North.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Nottingham are being difficult. The Llandaff North solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nottingham are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham 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 acquired my home on 1 June and the transaction details is yet to be registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Llandaff North said it will be formalised in less than a month. Are titles in Llandaff North uniquely lengthy to register?

As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore registration formalities is not typically an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
