What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Grangetown? What am I being asked for?
Grangetown conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property practitioners throughout the UK have a duty under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to check the ID of any client in order to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.
Conveyancing clients are required to supply two forms of certified ID; proof of ID (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (usually a Bank Statement no older than three months).
Evidence of the origin of monies is also required under the money laundering laws as lawyers are obliged to ensure that the money you are utilising to acquire a property (be it the exchange deposit or the full purchase monies if you are a cash purchaser) has come from an acceptable source (such as an inheritance) rather than the proceeds of illegitimate behaviour.
