We are due to complete buying a house in Tyne And Wear but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the owner of six thousand pounds taking the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement but RBS will not agree to this. Why were they approached?
The conveyancing practitioner that is on the RBS approved list is duty bound to inform RBS of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to report the reduction to RBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, RBS and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Tyne And Wear.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nottingham are being difficult. The Tyne And Wear solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nottingham are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham 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.
