Given that your lender is Clydesdale your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications.
