Your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with the CML Handbook section two specifications 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. 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.

As the bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property is over ten years old the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be sufficient. The report should highlight any obvious problems and suggest further investigation where appropriate. Where there are any indications of material issues obtain a full structural survey.
