I am purchasing a property in Ombersley. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with HSBC your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to HSBC where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Ombersley.
