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

To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Mapperley conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is usually 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 ascertain not just the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may result in your solicitor terminating their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your conveyancers are duty bound to notify the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
