The Shillington conveyancing firm handling our Shillington conveyancing has identified a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer has advised that he needs to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s stance right?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate.

The Shillington solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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