What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Olney? Is this really warranted?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Olney conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are duty bound to investigate not simply the ID of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will lead to your lawyer terminating their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers will have an obligation to notify the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
