I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being difficult. The Balsall Heath 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.

I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Balsall Heath. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money started?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Balsall Heath conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Virgin Money approved list. Concerning the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to move forward with searches.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Balsall Heath concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
