It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Gamlingay building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend.

I simply don't know who is right.
Provided that the property lawyer is on the lender panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook provisions 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
Intending to buy a maisonette in Gamlingay.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Gamlingay. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just received a yearly service charge demand – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as normal given that all rents and maintenance invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
