I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Flitwick bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend.

Your conveyancer has to comply with the CML Handbook section two conditions for your 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
