It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Eastney and Southsea building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend.

I have no idea who is right.
The lawyer must follow 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I was pointed in your direction by a couple of local property agents in Eastney and Southsea to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your site over a competitor’s?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My husband and I are a fortnight into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the local agent to handle our conveyancing in Eastney and Southsea. I am not happy. Could you help me find new lawyers?
A solicitor would have to be very bad to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? If so you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and have the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid supplemental costs and delays. So that should be your starting point.

My wife and I have chosen a Eastney and Southsea conveyancing solicitor for our home move (first time buyers) and have spotted in the engagement letter that they are not covered by the Financial Conduct Authority. Should I be worried or is that usually the case with conveyancing practitioner?
We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancing practitioner don't lend money. You should check that they are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who dictate specific rules covering monies sitting by them.
