Some major banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander.

I am buying a property in Rusholm. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Nationwide be concerned?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Nationwide your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nationwide. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Nationwide where a lease does not meet these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Rusholm.
It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Rusholm building society branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Rusholm conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Your lawyer has to follow the CML Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 remaining.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Rusholm with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it would impact my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
