Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing retainer. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. If you are unwilling to provide identification documents, your solicitor can not take you on as a client.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Sanderstead took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Am I right to be concerned about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Sanderstead conveyancing company?

As with many professional services, often recommendations from relatives can be most helpful. Yet there are lots of parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may recommend lawyers to select. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your own lawyer. You need to be aware that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
