My Marford solicitor has discovered a discrepancy between the information in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Marford? Why is this being asked of me?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Marford conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally satisfied 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 obliged by law to validate not just the ID of conveyancing clients but also the origin of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will result in your conveyancer cancelling 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 inform the relevant authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
I am aiming to move home in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Marford. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only take place after the vendors solicitors inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. You will need to tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Marford or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Marford.
My wife and I buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Marford. Our aim is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to ascertain if these works are permitted?

Some additions call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

You should start requesting conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP.
