It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my Barrow In Furness bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Barrow In Furness conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the lawyer is on the lender approved list, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, HSBC are being problematic. The Barrow In Furness solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but HSBC are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Barrow In Furness I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the property agent told us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Barrow In Furness
