The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Withernsea. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Withernsea bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Withernsea conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Your solicitor must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your 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 left on the lease.
