In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Long Hanborough? Why is this being asked of me?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Long Hanborough conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. 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, conveyancing solicitors are required to check not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will result in your lawyer ending 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 notify the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
