I can not work out if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Llanwrtyd Wells bank branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend.

The lawyer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your 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.
