My partner and I are approaching an exchange on a flat in Barton Le Clay and my mum and dad have transferred the exchange deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to delay the deal?
The solicitor is legally required to check with mortgage company to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

The first thing you should do is phone your solicitor and enquire if they can act for the lender. Otherwise you can call The Royal Bank of Scotland who may be able to assist.

I currently have a mortgage with Bank of Ireland for my property in Barton Le Clay. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Bank of Ireland?
Your original mortgage agreement with Bank of Ireland will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Bank of Ireland’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Bank of Ireland directly. You need not do this via a Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel lawyer.
It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Barton Le Clay building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Barton Le Clay conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Provided that the lawyer is on the mortgage company approved list, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
