What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Gwernaffield? Is this really warranted?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Gwernaffield conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account showing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are duty bound to investigate not simply the ID of conveyancing clients but also the origin of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may result in 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 notify the relevant authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Gwernaffield. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Gwernaffield - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
