My partner and I are nearing an exchange on a house in Primrose Hill and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to delay the deal?
The conveyancing practitioner is legally required to check with mortgage company to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only report this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I only have 62 years left on my flat in Primrose Hill. I am keen to get lease extension but my freeholder is can not be found. What options are available to me?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to track down the lessor. On the whole a specialist should be useful to carry out a search and prepare a report to be used as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Primrose Hill.
