I am acquiring a house mortgage free in Mancot. I have lived for the previous 20 years in Mancot. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a mortgage, then almost all of the Mancot conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to do this. Do consider; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it will be of relevance to your prospective purchaser what the searches contain. On occasion premises with functional issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Mancot will provide you some sensible guidance concerning this.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Mancot? Why is this being asked of me?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Mancot conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing where you reside.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are required to validate not just the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may result in your solicitor cancelling their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers are duty bound to make a disclosure to the appropriate authorities should they believe that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

I am intending to let out my leasehold apartment in Mancot. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Your lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Mancot do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.
