In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Edgbaston conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account showing where you reside.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are required to validate not just the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may result in your solicitor ending their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers are duty bound to notify the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
