I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Botley building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Botley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

As long as the conveyancer is on the mortgage company approved list, they must adhere to the CML Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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.
