My partner and I are purchasing our first property. The solicitor has messagedto check if we wish to take out extra conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's appropriate for conveyancing in Bryn Y Baal
The extent of Bryn Y Baal conveyancing searches should be dictated entirely on the property, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your familiarity of the area and risks, your overall approach to risk. What is important is that you properly appreciate what information each search could give you. You may then decide if you personally think you need that search. Should you be in doubt, ask your conveyancer to advise.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Bryn Y Baal? Why is this being asked of me?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you need to sign will no doubt reaffirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Where you refuse to hand over ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to act for you.
We're in Bryn Y Baal, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Aldermore , and our lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancing practitioner should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
