I can not fathom if my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Beddington bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Beddington conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank approved list, she or he must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the bank.
