My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Burnham On Crouch and my mum and dad have sent the exchange deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the bank regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to be an issue?
The property lawyer is legally required to clarify with lender to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
