We are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Shenley Brook End and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my solicitor needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I disclosed to the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
Your lawyer is legally required to check with lender to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be extinguished.
