I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in month 7 but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, The Chorley & District Building Society are being a right pain. The solicitor who is on the The Chorley & District Building Society conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but The Chorley & District Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate.

It is probably the case that The Chorley & District Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer.

It merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
