Pre- 2008 most banks exhibited an attitude to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the lawyers on your panel. Accordingly, lenders have subsequently looked to extract more information from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Many law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy track record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible meet the minimum amount of transactions the mortgage companies set.

My wife and I are approaching an exchange on a flat in Penn and Ettingshall and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancing practitioner 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 advised the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to delay the deal?

The property lawyer is obliged to check with lender 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 bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
