Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home buying as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Finsbury Park. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Finsbury Park?

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Principality are being a right pain. The Finsbury Park solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Principality are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality 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.
