What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Chorley and Eccleston? Is this really warranted?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Chorley and Eccleston conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing your correct address.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to investigate not simply the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may lead to your conveyancer terminating their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your conveyancers are duty bound to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

I am buying a new build house in Chorley and Eccleston benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about this deal as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
My wife and I may need to sub-let our Chorley and Eccleston 1st floor flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Chorley and Eccleston conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Notwithstanding that your last Chorley and Eccleston conveyancing lawyer is not around you can review your lease to check if you are permitted to let out the apartment. The accepted inference is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to obtain consent from your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of prior consent. The consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
Chorley and Eccleston Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing
Is anyone aware of any major works anticipated that could increase the maintenance charges? Does the lease have more than 80 years remaining? Does the lease include onerous restrictions?
We have had DIP from Bank of Scotland who suggested we could borrow up to £400k. When do I need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Chorley and Eccleston is where we plan to move to.
It would be wise to appoint a conveyancing practitioner now and ask them to generate a file for you. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s lawyer to send out the draft agreement. However, do not ask your conveyancer to start searches until you have your valuation report from Bank of Scotland and you are content to proceed.
