We are approaching an exchange on a property in Carisbrooke and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my solicitor needs to make a notification to my lender. 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 disclosed to the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
Your solicitor is duty bound to check with the bank to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only notify this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I am buying my first flat in Carisbrooke with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the extras as it will impact my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
