We have agreed to purchase a house in Hampton Hill. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is HSBC your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC.
