My partner and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Kingsbury and my mum and dad have transferred the exchange deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not arrived from me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the bank concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to be an issue?
Your solicitor is legally required to check with mortgage company to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold house in Kingsbury. Conveyancing and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing practitioner in Kingsbury who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

It is not necessary to instruct a Kingsbury conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
