What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Hopton? What am I being asked for?

In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Hopton conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing your correct address.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are duty bound to ascertain not simply the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will lead to your lawyer cancelling their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers will have an obligation to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Kent Reliance are being a right pain. The Hopton solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Kent Reliance are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
