We have agreed to purchase a house in Acton. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Coventry BS be concerned?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Coventry BS your lawyer must check the formal requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease does not comply with these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Acton.
I currently have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Acton. Conveyancing has been completed a year 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 UBS?
Your original mortgage agreement with UBS will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that UBS 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 UBS directly. You need not do this via a UBS conveyancing panel firm.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Acton I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Acton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
