We have agreed to purchase a house in Manningtree. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Yorkshire BS 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 your lender is Yorkshire BS your lawyer must check the formal requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Manningtree.
I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Manningtree building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Manningtree conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
The property lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I'm buying my first flat in Manningtree with a loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead.
