It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later.

It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Burscough building society branch on various occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Burscough conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 remaining.
I moved into my flat on 9 November and my personal details is yet to be registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Burscough said it should be formalised inside ten days. Are properties in Burscough uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Burscough registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties.
