What is a FENSA Certificate?
New regulations apply to replacement windows and doors installed since 1st April 2002.
Replacement windows, rooflights, roof windows and glazed doors (more than 50% glass) have to comply with FENSA Regulations/Building Regulations.
Either a FENSA Certificate or Building Regulation Approval/Completion Certificate should be available for any such works.
Therefore, if you believe that there have been any such works, then you need to tell us, in order that we can check with the seller/their solicitor that such documents are available. Copies of the relevant documents would be provided to us, and the originals upon completion.
You can find more information from the Building Control Department of your local Council or by visiting www.fensa.co.uk.
The FENSA site has a free search facility where you can enter the postcode of the property and check whether or not FENSA Certificates are available for your particular proposed property.
