We have agreed to purchase a house in Keswick. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Bank of Ireland 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 Bank of Ireland your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Bank of Ireland. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Bank of Ireland where a lease does not meet these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Keswick.

I purchased a renovated Edwardian house in Keswick. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Chelsea Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Keswick and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Keswick benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it would affect my loan with Coventry Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Keswick. I happened to land on a web site which appears to be the ideal solution If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via phone that would be ideal. Should I be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
