I am purchasing a property in Parkstone. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. TSB 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 you are obtaining a mortgage with TSB your lawyer must follow the formal instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to TSB where a lease does not satisfy these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Parkstone.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with HSBC. I assume I don't need a Parkstone lawyer on the HSBC panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your HSBC mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the HSBC mortgage from the register. HSBC, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where HSBC has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. HSBC has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your HSBC mortgage has been paid off.

We own a leasehold flat in Parkstone. Conveyancing was finished in 21012. I have heard that I should not allow the lease length get too short. What is the reasoning?

Parkstone leasehold properties are for a fixed period - usually just under one hundred years when they commenced. However a significant flats in Parkstone were constructed or converted 25 or more years ago and so these leases now have under 80 years left to run. That may seem like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have at least seventy five years left to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are approaching eighty years. To enhance the saleability of your property you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are advantages to doing so before the lease hits eighty years as when the lease is less than 80 years the amount to be paid to extend starts to increase.
