As you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for RBS.

It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Yarm On Tees bank branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Yarm On Tees conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the lawyer is on the mortgage company panel, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
