We are getting closer to an exchange on a flat in Broughton In Furness and my mum and dad have sent the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to be an issue?
The conveyancer is legally required to check with the bank to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Virgin Money as we want to carry out improvements to our home in Broughton In Furness. Are we obliged to select a high street Broughton In Furness solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Virgin Money would not normally instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Broughton In Furness property lawyer having checked that they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Broughton In Furness postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Broughton In Furness.
