I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, RBS are being problematic. The Long Eaton solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but RBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS 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.

As is the case with many service providers, often input from family and friends can be very helpful. But there are many parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all suggest conveyancers to retain.
