We have agreed to purchase a house in Shillington. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Virgin Money have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Virgin Money your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Virgin Money where a lease does not satisfy these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Shillington.

I have instructed a Shillington solicitor having made sure that they are on the Santander conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Santander will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Santander will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Shillington surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a flat in Shillington has been accepted, what happens next?

The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Contact Clydesdale or the broker and complete any relevant forms. Clydesdale will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week to get a mortgage offer. Clydesdale will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Shillington.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Shillington I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Shillington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

At what point do I pay stamp duty due for my conveyancing in Shillington?

Most property lawyers will complete a stamp duty return on your behalf as part of your Shillington purchase transaction for signature. On completion your solicitor will submit your STL Return Form to the Inland Revenue and - as long as they have the money - settle any land tax payable for you.
