I have paid a deposit but my mortgage has been withdrawn

I planned to buy an apartment. I noticed the apartment was withdrawn from an agency and subsequently appeared advertised on a property website as being part of an auction. I successfully bid for the apartment & paid 10 per cent deposit and signed a contract to complete the sale there and then. I appear to have paid a deposit on a property for which no mortgage is available and therefore I cannot complete the purchase. My solicitor has suggested Distressed Title Insurance Bond but I don’t know if it will be accepted by my bank?

faulty apartment windows

I live on the fourth floor of an apartment block. Recently one of the windows fell out on to my daughter who was standing in the kitchen. About three years ago I raised concerns with the builder that this window was rattling. They said they didn’t think it was cause for any serious concern.
