I am buying a property in Fowey. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Bank of Ireland be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Bank of Ireland your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Bank of Ireland. The CML Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease does not satisfy these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Fowey.

About to purchase flat in Fowey. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Fowey solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Fowey completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Fowey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Fowey approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Fowey tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Fowey or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Fowey I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fowey in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Finally our conveyancing in Fowey is completing on Friday, yet the owners I am buying off has asked to vacate the next day at at 2pm. Should I agree to this?

In situations where you are having a bank loan then your lawyer will demand that the premises arevacant on Friday - the bank will compel it.
