I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in month 8 but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, MBS Lending Ltd are being a right pain.

Why do MBS Lending Ltd have a conveyancing panel of they don’t accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that MBS Lending Ltd have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why MBS Lending Ltd may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing correctly and safely installed. It merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
