What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Wimborne Minster? Is this really necessary?
Wimborne Minster conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property practitioners accross the UK have an obligation under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to verify the identity of any client in order to ensure that clients are who they say they are.
Conveyancing clients will need to disclose two forms of certified ID; proof of ID (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (typically a Bank Statement less than 3 months old).
Proof of source of funds is also necessary under the money laundering statutes as solicitors are mandated to investigate that the monies you are utilising to purchase a property (be it the exchange deposit or the total purchase price where you are a cash purchaser) has originated from an acceptable source (such as employment savings) rather than the fruits of illegitimate behaviour.

We had instructed solicitors located in Wimborne Minster on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a separate amount for the legal aspects of the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Kent Reliance?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Kent Reliance but by your Wimborne Minster solicitor. Some firms on the Kent Reliance panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.
My offer was accepted on a house in Wimborne Minster on 1/11/2018, valuation was booked five days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Are Coventry BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My sealed bid on a property in Wimborne Minster has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Wimborne Minster. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Nottingham?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Wimborne Minster conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Nottingham approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Wimborne Minster.
What can I do where I am not happy with the conveyancing practitioner who undertook our conveyancing in Wimborne Minster?

If you remain dissatisfied you may consider enlisting the help of the Legal Ombudsman.
