My husband and I are getting closer to an exchange on a property in Willenhall and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
The property lawyer is legally required to clarify with the bank to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Willenhall I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Willenhall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a home loan that many years may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
Do I need to be suspicious by brokers that I am dealing with are recommending an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Willenhall conveyancing practice?
As with many service providers, often recommendations from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are lots of people with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all suggest lawyers to instruct. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that many banks have an approved list of law firms you must use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.
