I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Padstow bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Padstow conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The conveyancing practitioner must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your lender. 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
