It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Hazlemere building society branch on various occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend.

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.
