I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Haggerston and my parents have sent the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. 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 lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

The solicitor is obliged to check with lender to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
