The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Co-operative where a lease does not satisfy these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Putney.

From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
