My partner and I are approaching an exchange on a property in Rogiet and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
The property lawyer is duty bound to clarify with mortgage company to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only notify this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
