I am expecting a mortgage offer from Nat West. I hope to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Sudbury. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

We are about to exchange contracts for a garden flat in Sudbury. We encountered a problem. Our mortgage offer with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society expires on 8/10/2019 but the owners are insisting on a completion date of 10/10/2019. Can one extend the loan offer?
The best person to address this concern is your conveyancer who will assess if they better off negotiating with the mortgage company, seller’s solicitors, selling agents or indeed all three based on the circumstances your conveyancing as of today.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Sudbury I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease.

If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you.
