I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in month 7 but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate.

My ex -wife’s name is on the Tipton Coseley Building Society mortgage of my property but not on the land registry. The apartment was transferred to me on our divorce many years ago by way of a sealed court order.
