We are approaching an exchange on a flat in Crediton and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
The conveyancer is legally required to check with lender to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
