We are approaching an exchange on a property in Partington and my mum and dad have transferred the exchange deposit to my lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the mortgage company concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
The lawyer is obliged to clarify with lender to make sure that they are aware 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.

We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Aldermore as we want to conduct alterations to our property in Partington. Do we need to appoint a nearby Partington solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Aldermore don't usually appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore list.
Intending to buy a house in Partington. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Partington lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

We are purchasing a 2 room flatin Partington with a mortgage from a bank. We have a lawyer in Partington however our mortgage company inform us now that she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our bank panel firms or stay with our Partington conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our lender. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Partington lawyer?
No, not really. The bank home loan issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the lender's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Partington : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
