Solar Lease

What is a Solar Lease?

There are two ways in which to obtain solar panels for your home. You can purchase them, or you can lease them from the solar panel provider. When you obtain solar panels via a lease the provider will normally require a lease of the roof space. This Lease would be a registrable interest and would accordingly be registered at the Land Registry as a Solar Lease.

Contents of Solar Lease

Solar Leases are longwinded in describing the terms and conditions that bind each party. However, they will contain the required Prescribed Clauses and so there will be some order to its contents.

In addition most leases contain a detailed Lease Plan and may also contain explanatory photographs.

Some terms of the lease can be onerous and can interfere with the sale or other disposition of the property. As the lease is long and uses terminology best understood by a solicitor, it would be prudent to obtain advice on any onerous conditions before accepting the solar lease or before purchasing a property subject to one.
