We have agreed to purchase a house in Treuddyn. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Aldermore have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Aldermore your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Aldermore where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Treuddyn.
It is not clear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Treuddyn bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Treuddyn conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
The lawyer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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.

Who manages the building? On the whole the cost for major works are not included within service charges, although a few managing agents in Treuddyn ask leasehold owners to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific purpose of building a fund for major repairs or maintenance. The best form of lease arrangement is if the freehold title is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this scenario the tenants benefit from control and even though a managing agent is frequently employed if the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves.
