We are getting closer to an exchange on a property in Upper Clapton and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my solicitor needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the bank concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

The conveyancer is duty bound to clarify with mortgage company to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only report this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Flying freeholds in Upper Clapton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Upper Clapton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Upper Clapton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Am I best advised to go with a Upper Clapton conveyancing solicitor based in the vicinity that I am buying? An old friend can conduct the conveyancing however they are based 400miles away.

The benefit of a high street Upper Clapton conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Upper Clapton know how is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and they were happy that must trump using an unknown Upper Clapton conveyancing lawyer just because they are Upper Clapton based.
