My partner and I are getting closer to an exchange on a house in Tolworth and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to make a notification 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 disclosed to the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

The solicitor is legally required to check with the bank to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Given you plan to refinance then Skipton will insist on your using a conveyancer on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate.

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

My husband and I have AIP from Halifax who have advised that they will lend up to £117k. When do we need to appoint a solicitor for conveyancing? Tolworth is where we are purchasing.

You can instruct a property lawyer now and ask them to generate a file on your behalf. This will enable: 1) the selling agent to issue a Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s conveyancer to submit the draft contract. That being said, do not instruct your lawyer to order searches until you have your valuation report from Halifax and you are happy to proceed.
