My partner and I are approaching an exchange on a house in Finchley and my mum and dad have sent the exchange deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to delay the deal?

The property lawyer is duty bound to clarify with mortgage company to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Finchley I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Finchley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Is there a reason that Finchley conveyancing fees are more expensive for leasehold and freehold properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Finchley will often involve additional due diligence such as investigating the lease, liaising with the freeholder, obtaining up to date rent receipts, landlord’s consents, management company’s accounts etc.
