Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Toton with a loan from Chelsea Building Society. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the extras as it would affect my loan with Chelsea Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Toton I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Toton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
