We have agreed to purchase a house in St Bees. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nationwide have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As your lender is Nationwide your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nationwide. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Nationwide where a lease does not meet these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to St Bees.

The mortgage over my property is with Kent Reliance for my property in St Bees. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Kent Reliance?

Your original mortgage agreement with Kent Reliance will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. You need not do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel firm.

I'm buying a new build house in St Bees with a loan from Clydesdale. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my lawyer about this extras as it would affect my mortgage with Clydesdale. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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%.

As a leasehold owner I am liable for a maintenance contribution for my appartment in St Bees. As a result of personal circumstances I slipped behind with payments. The managing agents agreed a settlement schedule but there is still in the region of £3000 currently due.

I now wish to dispose of the property and I am panicking this could hold me back if I have to settle the amount due in advance. Do I have to settle before - is this achievable?

Do clarify with the lawyer handling your St Bees conveyancing but one option might be to agree for the outstanding amount to be transferred to the purchasers. The sale price payable would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they take on. They would then discharge the fees once they are the owners.
