We have agreed to purchase a house in Pentre Halkyn. 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?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with HSBC your lawyer must check the formal requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to HSBC where a lease fails to comply with these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Pentre Halkyn.
