I am approaching an exchange on a property in Chelmsley Wood and my mum and dad 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 property lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to be an issue?

Your property lawyer is obliged to check with the bank to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only report this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
