Will a solar PV system affect me selling the house?
The solar panels installed on your property are owned by you and were purchased as ‘fixture and fittings’ as part of your property. The panels are not leased.
Solar PV should be seen as a positive feature by prospective buyers as it will contribute to lower energy bills compared to a house without solar.
If you are registered for the Feed in Tariff scheme, you will lose any benefit from this. However, any prospective purchaser could potentially still receive these payments.
Keep the user manual and MCS certificate as these may be required for the new owners.
I have bought a house from another homeowner where Eco2Solar have installed the solar PV. What do I need to do?
To be eligible for any remaining warranty on the solar PV system, you will need to provide proof of ownership of the property from the purchase. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns about your system.
You also need to advise your energy provider that you have solar panels on your property. If the previous owner was registered for the Feed in Tariff, then you may be eligible to take on any future payments by completing the appropriate Change of Ownership forms supplied by the energy provider.
