I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my East Finchley building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My East Finchley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
