I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to leave my let out property in Splott by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. Can I complete in 4 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?
Generally one should not serve notice on a rental unless your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not already done so, contact to your conveyancer and request that they seek the assistance the sellers solicitors, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will work to achieve
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Splott? Is this really warranted?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Splott conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill evidencing where you live.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are required to investigate not simply the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will lead to your solicitor terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your conveyancers will have an obligation to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
Is it the case that all Splott CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the UBS conveyancing list of approved practices?
Some major lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of firms.

I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Splott on 12/6/2019, valuation was booked 3 days later, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
