Where you act for the buyer and the lender and you recieve a mortgage advance, how do you show this on the accounts?
A separate leger does not need to be opened for the bank (Rule 32(6)) as long as it is an institutional lender which provides mortgages on standard terms in the normal course of their activities (e.g. banks and building societies) - otherwise a separate ledger will be necessary
However, these funds must be CLEARLY IDENTIFIABLE
This is what you write in the details column: Mortgage advance held for X Bank/Building Society
