We have agreed to purchase a house in Mountain Ash. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Aldermore be concerned?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Aldermore where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Mountain Ash.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Coventry BS are being problematic. The Mountain Ash solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS 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 apartment on 9 March and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Mountain Ash advises it should be dealt with inside ten days. Are titles in Mountain Ash uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Mountain Ash registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies.

Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises thus registration formalities is not always primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
