In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the house moving process. E.g., the seller, property agent and sometimes a lender.

I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Newquay bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Newquay conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the solicitor is on the mortgage company approved list, she or he must adhere to the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
