I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, UBS are being difficult. The Umberleigh solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but UBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that UBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why UBS 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.
