I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being pedantic. The Askam In Furness solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance 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.
Kent Reliance have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Askam In Furness has been agreed to, now what?
The property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Kent Reliance or your broker and complete any relevant forms. Kent Reliance will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Kent Reliance will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Askam In Furness.
