I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Kennington and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has not arrived from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
The conveyancer is duty bound to clarify with lender to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

4 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Kennington completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
