My wife and I are approaching an exchange on a house in Haggerston and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than 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?
The lawyer is duty bound to check with lender to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only disclose this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer may charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Aldermore but by your Haggerston lawyer. Some firms on the Aldermore panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
