I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Tedburn St Mary building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Tedburn St Mary conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the solicitor is on the bank panel, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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.
