We are approaching an exchange on a flat in Denmark Hill and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my solicitor. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to hold matters up?
Your solicitor 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 resources. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
