We have agreed to purchase a house in Uckfield. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Santander be concerned?
As your lender is Santander your lawyer must follow the formal instructions outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Santander. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Santander where a lease fails to comply with these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Uckfield.
We were going to get a DIP from Clydesdale this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Uckfield solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.

Do I need to be suspicious about third parties that I am dealing with are recommending a national conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Uckfield conveyancing company?
As is the case with many service providers, often referrals from family and friends can be very helpful. Yet there are many people with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all put forward conveyancers to choose. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to choose your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that some banks operate an approved list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your home move.
