I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Virgin Money are being problematic. The Creigiau solicitor who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Virgin Money are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Virgin Money have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Virgin Money have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Virgin Money 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 bought my flat on 12 August and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Creigiau advises it should be recorded inside ten days. Are transfers in Creigiau uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Creigiau 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 if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property so registration formalities is not typically primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
