What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Rochford? What am I being asked for?

Rochford conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers throughout the UK have an obligation under money laundering regulations to verify the ID of any client with a view to ensure that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients will need to provide two forms of certified ID; proof of identity (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (usually a Bank Statement no more than three months).

Proof of the origin of monies is also required under the money laundering statutes as solicitors are mandated to ensure that the money you are utilising to purchase a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase price where you are buying mortgage free) has originated from a reputable source (such as an inheritance) and is not the proceeds of criminal activity.

How does conveyancing in Rochford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Rochford approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Rochford tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Rochford or who has acted in the same development.
