Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Perry Barr. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office.

However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Perry Barr building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Perry Barr conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Provided that the property lawyer is on the bank panel, she or he must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
