I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Skipton are being pedantic. The Kings Langley 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.

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Kings Langley conveyancing search charges, etc).

It best that you discharge the maintenance contribution as normal because all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date.
