I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Kegworth bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they will lend.

As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank panel, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank.

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.
