We have agreed to purchase a house in Henllys. 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 formal instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Bank of Ireland. The CML Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease does not comply with these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Henllys.
I am expecting a DIP from Virgin Money this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Virgin Money recommend any Henllys solicitors on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Henllys solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Virgin Money through the process.
I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for stalling in Henllys house deals. Is there any truth in this?

Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Henllys.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Henllys I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Henllys in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
