I am approaching an exchange on a property in Duffield and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my bank. 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 mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
