I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, TSB are being a right pain. The East Dean solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB 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.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in East Dean I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in East Dean for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 62 years left on my flat in East Dean. I am keen to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What are my options?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to locate the lessor. For most situations a specialist may be helpful to carry out a search and prepare a report which can be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering East Dean.
