My wife and I are nearing an exchange on a property in Eaglescliffe and my mum and dad have sent the exchange deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my solicitor needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. 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 informed the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
The lawyer is legally required to clarify 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 mortgage company if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to let out our Eaglescliffe ground floor flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Eaglescliffe conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Eaglescliffe do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.
