    Hi Sue, we actually covered this in a recent blog. Basically it shouldn’t put you off, provided it was installed by an MCS installer and it wasn’t installed as part of a rent-a-roof scheme. Provided it was installed in the last few years it is very likely that the current owner will be benefitting from the Feed-in tariff, which is a payment made for producing electricity and also obviously you also get to use this free electricity in your home. If you have specific questions as you move on through the buying process feel free to ask and I will try to help! Thanks James

    We tried to buy a house with rent a roof solar scheme. Couldn’t get mortgage. That was 2 years ago mind so things may have changed.

    Buying a house with Solar PV

    Hi, I am looking to buy a new property, but the house has solar panels and I am not sure what implications that has on me the purchaser if any! To be honest I wouldn’t get them myself, but since they are already there and don’t detract from the property I am very happy to keep them, especially if they are free and making me free electricity! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Sue
