I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Petersham and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. I am advised that, 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 regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

Your lawyer is duty bound 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 mortgage company if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
