My partner and I are nearing an exchange on a flat in Hilperton and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my conveyancer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to be an issue?
Your conveyancing practitioner is legally required to clarify with lender to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
