Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Loughton

Me and my wife are purchasing our first house. Our conveyancer has messagedto ask if we would like to order supplemental conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's needed for conveyancing in Loughton

The quantity and type of Loughton conveyancing searches should be dictated primarily on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the region and risks, your general approach to risk. What is important is that you adequately understand what information each search could supply. Then you can make a decision if you personally think you need that search.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Loughton? Is this really necessary?

In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Loughton 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 bill evidencing your correct address.

Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are duty bound to check not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will result in your conveyancer ending their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your conveyancers will have an obligation to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
