We are getting closer to an exchange and my parents having transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer.

I disclosed to the bank about my parent’s contribution when I applied for the home loan so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the State Bank of India UK Solicitor panel prior to the moving date as agreed at exchange of contracts?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have ti instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by the regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
When it comes to lenders such as State Bank of India UK do solicitors have to be pay a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?
