I am helping my mother sell her property in Bournemouth. Does the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy assessment or should I organise this?

After the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a required element of selling a house.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Nottingham are being pedantic. The Bournemouth solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nottingham are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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