I am purchasing a property in Spalding. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. TSB 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 TSB your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The CML Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to TSB where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Spalding.
It is not clear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Spalding building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Spalding conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the lender approved list, she or he must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Spalding.
