We have agreed to purchase a house in Winterbourne. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Leeds Building Society 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 Leeds Building Society your lawyer must check the formal requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Leeds Building Society. The CML Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Leeds Building Society where a lease fails to satisfy these requirements. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Winterbourne.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Skipton are being difficult. The Winterbourne solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Skipton are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton 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.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a house in Neath but I am based in Winterbourne. My solicitor (based 260 miles from merequires that I execute a statutory declaration before completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Winterbourne to attest this legal document for me?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Winterbourne based

Do online conveyancing companies do everything a local Winterbourne solicitor does or do I still need to retain a solicitor for the final stages for my conveyancing in Winterbourne?

Where you choose an online conveyancer they should cover all the work your Winterbourne conveyancer will cover.
