In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Port Isaac? What am I being asked for?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Port Isaac 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 bill showing where you live.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are required to ascertain not just the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies 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 conveyancers are duty bound to notify the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
My fiance and I are buying a newbuild flat in Port Isaac with a loan from Nottingham Building Society.We have a Port Isaac conveyancing practitioner but Nottingham Building Society informed us his firm is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Nottingham Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Nottingham Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Nottingham Building Society use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that solicitors needs to be on the Nottingham Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham Building Society
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Nottingham, do Port Isaac conveyancers have to pay a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
My wife and I have arranged the release of further funds on our home loan from Kent Reliance as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Port Isaac. Are we obliged to appoint a nearby Port Isaac solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Kent Reliance would not normally instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
Intending to buy a flat in Port Isaac. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Port Isaac conveyancer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
