Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey.

Should you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted.
