We are approaching an exchange on a house in South Normanton and my mum and dad have sent the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must inform 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 appropriate for this now to delay the deal?
The solicitor is obliged to clarify with the bank to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
When can the exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in South Normanton and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in South Normanton you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the firms we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in South Normanton)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
