My IFA has requested my Mountsorrel solicitor’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have called my local Mountsorrel branch but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Mountsorrel lawyer . Most Mountsorrel law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to be out of my rented apartment in Mountsorrel by 14/6/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in six weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Mountsorrel? What am I being asked for?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Mountsorrel conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account showing where you live.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are duty bound to check 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 conveyancer cancelling their retainer 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.
