My Writtle conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the property lawyer is on the bank approved list, they must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the bank.

We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
