I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Aldermore are being problematic. The Holywell solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Aldermore are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer.

The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My wife and I may need to rent out our Holywell basement flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Holywell conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

Notwithstanding that your previous Holywell conveyancing solicitor is not available you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the apartment. The accepted inference is that if the lease is silent, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you are obliged to obtain consent from your landlord or other appropriate person in advance of subletting. This means that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining consent. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably turned down. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
