We have agreed to purchase a house in Southall. A rare 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?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore your lawyer must follow the formal instructions contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Aldermore where a lease does not comply with these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Southall.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Southall is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I moved into my flat on 12 August and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Southall expressed confidence that it would be registered in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Southall uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Southall is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not usually top priority yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Should I be concerned by estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an internet conveyancing firm rather than a local Southall conveyancing company?

As is the case with lots of service providers, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are numerous people with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may recommend solicitors to use.
