Your solicitor should check the registered title as conveyancing in Chessington can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Certain works need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Chessington bank branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Chessington conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Provided that the solicitor is on the bank panel, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 left on the lease.
