I am purchasing a property in Ashbourne. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Barclays 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 Barclays your lawyer must follow the formal instructions contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Barclays where a lease fails to meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Ashbourne.

If.Given you are not getting a home loan you are at free not to do searches although no conveyancer would advise that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Ashbourne the following are examples of issues that can crop up and therefore impact the marketability of the property: Enforcement Actions, Overdue Fees, Outstanding Grants, Road Schemes,...

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Ashbourne I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ashbourne suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
