Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Holywell. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Holywell?

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, HSBC are being pedantic. The Holywell solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but HSBC are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC 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.
