As you are obtaining a mortgage with Santander, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Nantwich building society branch on various occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Nantwich conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
As long as the property lawyer is on the mortgage company approved list, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook conditions for the bank. 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.
