What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Highnam? Is this really warranted?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign should stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. Should you refuse to provide identification documents, your lawyer will not be able to take you on as a client.

How does conveyancing in Highnam differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Highnam come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Highnam typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Highnam or who has acted in the same development.
