It is not clear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Billesdon building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend.

Your conveyancer must comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 conditions for your lender. 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
