I can't travel far from Mapperley. What is the rationale as to why all Mapperley conveyancers aren't automatically on all bank panels?

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nationwide are being a right pain. The Mapperley solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nationwide are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

My parents cant seem to find their Mapperley property on the HMLR website. They have a vague memory back in the 60’s when they purchased the property there were complications regarding the post code not being identified on some systems.

Nearly all residences in Mapperley should show up. Have you tried a search with just the postcode. Ordinarily it should disclose all the premises within that postcode. Where registered it will show up with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered.
