We had instructed conveyancing lawyers locally in Repton on the Principality solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional fee for handling the Principality mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Principality?

We have agreed to purchase a house in Repton. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with UBS your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Repton.

It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Repton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Repton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Provided that the solicitor is on the lender approved list, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Repton I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Repton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you require a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
