I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Nationwide are being pedantic. The Hendon solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nationwide are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide 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.

The property agent will wish to be advised as to your property lawyer's details (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list).

Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days to get a mortgage offer. Santander will send the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Hendon.
