Most conveyancing in Finchley involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am purchasing a property in Finchley. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Yorkshire BS 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 you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease fails to comply with these provisions.

It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Finchley bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Finchley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.
As long as the lawyer is on the bank approved list, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 remaining.
