I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my St Neots bank branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they will lend.

Provided that the property lawyer is on the bank panel, they must follow the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in St Neots. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing solicitor in St Neots who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?

There is no need to incur the fees of a St Neots conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
