We have agreed to purchase a house in Peckham. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. UBS 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 UBS your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to UBS where a lease does not meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Peckham.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Peckham. I have a mortgage agreed with TSB. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Leeds Building Society are being a right pain. The Peckham solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Leeds Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Peckham?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Peckham. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I am purchasing a maisonette mortgage free. My lawyer has been given with two distinct proof of photo ID, bank statement, numerous utility bills. Now he requires a copy from a probate lawyer stating that the funds are in order and that it has come from inheritance and not selling fake DVD.
