I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Skipton are being pedantic. The Highbury solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Skipton are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton 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'm purchasing a new build house in Highbury with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it will impact my loan with Yorkshire Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am one month into a freehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the local agent to handle our conveyancing in Highbury. I am am very frustrated with the quality of service. Can you help me find new conveyancers?
