It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Hethersett bank branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Hethersett conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the solicitor is on the lender approved list, 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
