I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Sunbury On Thames and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my solicitor needs to make a notification to my bank. 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 informed the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
Your conveyancing practitioner is obliged to clarify with lender to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Is it correct that all Sunbury On Thames CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Co-operative conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
Some major banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Sunbury On Thames solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
