It is not clear 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 Lound bank branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Lound conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the property lawyer is on the bank panel, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Lound basement flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Lound conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Lound do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
