My wife and I are getting closer to an exchange on a property in Cullompton and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
The conveyancer is obliged to check with mortgage company to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
