What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Spondon? Is this really warranted?
Spondon conveyancing solicitors and indeed property practitioners throughout the UK have an obligation under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to check the ID of any client with a view to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.
Conveyancing clients are required to disclose two forms of certified ID; proof of ID (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (typically a Utility Bill no older than three months).
Evidence of the origin of monies is also necessary under the money laundering statutes as lawyers are required to investigate that the money you are using to buy a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase amount where you are a cash purchaser) has originated from legitimate source (such as employment savings) as opposed to the product of illegitimate behaviour.
