My wife and I are approaching an exchange on a house in Cambridgeshire 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 solicitor needs to make a notification to my bank. I am advised that, 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 informed the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

Your property lawyer is duty bound to check with mortgage company to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Cambridgeshire I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cambridgeshire for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
