The Importance Of A FENSA Certificate And What To Do If You Lose One

If you ever come to sell your home some time in the future, what you really don’t want is any hold-ups or hitches. You just want a straightforward sale so that you can move on to your new place. 

It’s not unknown for a single piece of paper to delay a house sale and that piece of paper is a FENSA certificate.

Authorised by the Government and issued out since 2002, a FENSA certificate proves that a window or door installation is compliant with building regulations, energy efficient and properly registered. 

So, if you have had replacement windows and doors added to your home within the last 18 years by a FENSA-registered firm, you should have your own copy of one. 

As a FENSA member ourselves, we always supply our customers with a FENSA certificate for any completed window or door job. 

It’s really important that you keep hold of it as you have to hand it over to the next occupant of your home when selling. A failure to do so could easily see a buyer pull out of a deal, that’s how crucial it is that you have one. 

What do you do if you lose the certificate? Don’t panic is the answer.

You can get a replacement certificate via the FENSA website at a cost of £25, so long as you definitely used a FENSA Approved Installer. 

If you opt not to use a FENSA member for new windows and doors, you may well have to certify the installation yourself with your local council, which is a hassle you could probably do without. 

It’s much simpler for you if you put someone like Amber in charge as we will do the necessary registering and certifying for you.
