You've had the benefit of paid legal advice from a solicitor and they have alerted you to a potential hazard.
Can you not delay completion. My Absolute came back from my local court within a week.
Nothing is certain until you have received a sealed order from the court - which you have not. Also the Order is not enforceable until the decree absolute is issued.

I would try to stall the completion by a few weeks.

Maybe your parents could register a charge on the property to protect their interest and draw up a proper loan agreement. Worth asking your solicitor if that would offer you the necessary protection. If you're listed as litigant in person you can contact the court yourself - not sure why you had to rely on the other solicitor to update you.
