What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Herefordshire? Why is this being asked of me?

Herefordshire conveyancing solicitors and indeed property practitioners accross the UK have an obligation 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 will need to supply two forms of certified ID; proof of ID (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (usually a Bank Statement no more than three months).

Proof of source of monies is also necessary in accordance with the money laundering laws as conveyancers are obliged to check that the money you are using to buy a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase price where you are a cash purchaser) has come from a reputable source (such as an inheritance) as opposed to the proceeds of criminal activity.

Should my conveyancer be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Herefordshire.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Herefordshire. There are those who purchase a property in Herefordshire, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Herefordshire. The conventional set of property information forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the seller to discover whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an environmental search. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be conducted.
