I am nearing an exchange on a house in Wimborne Minster and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my solicitor. I am now informed that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. 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 lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
The property lawyer is legally required to check with lender to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
