Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Where you are unwilling to supply identification documents, your conveyancer will not be able to take you on as a client.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Totterdown conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. How long does it take for Barclays to send the offer to the lawyer?

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Totterdown bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Totterdown conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the conveyancer is on the bank panel, they must comply with the CML Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Our offer on a house in Totterdown has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Totterdown. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS started?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Totterdown conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Totterdown.
