Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in Hereford will occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain changes or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions need local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, UBS are being pedantic. The Hereford solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance 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.
