When it comes to conveyancing in Pevensey seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Pevensey. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Aldermore be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The CML Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Aldermore where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Pevensey.
It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Pevensey bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Pevensey conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
The property lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
