I can not work out if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Connahs Quay bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Connahs Quay conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they would not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the property lawyer is on the bank panel, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the lender. 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Connahs Quay conveyancer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
