My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Burbage and Hinckley and my parents have transferred the exchange deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your conveyancing practitioner is obliged to check with mortgage company 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.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, but the property agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Burbage and Hinckley

Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your own,trusted Burbage and Hinckley conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
