Conveyancing clients will need to produce two forms of certified identification; proof of ID (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (typically a Utility Bill less than 3 months old).

Proof of the origin of monies is also required under the money laundering laws as solicitors are required to ensure that the monies you are utilising to purchase a property (be it the exchange deposit or the full purchase monies if you are buying without a mortgage) has come from legitimate source (such as an inheritance) and is not the fruits of illegitimate behaviour.

The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Edingale do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
