I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Clydesdale are being difficult. The Hither Green solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Clydesdale are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale 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.

A small minority of properties in Hither Green do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord.
