I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being difficult. The Robertsbridge solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

I purchased my house on 4 January and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Robertsbridge advises it should be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Robertsbridge uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Robertsbridge registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
