I am getting closer to an exchange on a flat in Beckermet and my parents have transferred the 10% deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
Your property lawyer is legally required to clarify with the bank to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only report this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Beckermet?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Beckermet I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Beckermet for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
