I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to vacate my rented apartment in Grange Park by 8/1/2021. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?

My lawyers in Grange Park have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
