I am buying a property in Linton. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Aldermore have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore your lawyer must follow the formal requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The CML Handbook contains minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Aldermore where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Linton.

Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Linton

It is improbable the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is counter productive. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your preferred Linton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
