We are only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Bloxham and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my lender. Apparently, 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 lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your lawyer is duty bound to clarify with the bank to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only notify this to your mortgage company if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Bloxham?
If you are buying a property in Bloxham your solicitor will ask you put them with monies to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the Local Authority Search. When the down payment is payable against the total price then this will be asked for immediately ahead of contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is needed will be payable a few days ahead of the day of completion.

2 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Bloxham concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
My step-father has urged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Bloxham. Should I use them?
Much as we are happy to recommend a Bloxham conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to select a conveyancing lawyer is to seek referrals from friends or family who have actually used the firm you're are thinking of instructing.
I need to swap lawyers as my Bloxham lawyer is not on the bank's panel of conveyancing solicitors. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?
If you haven't yet appointed a conveyancer to do anything for you and have just received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Bloxham that you're considering.
