In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Wythenshawe? Why is this being asked of me?

Wythenshawe conveyancing solicitors and indeed property practitioners throughout the UK have a duty under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to check the identity of any client in order to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients are required to produce two forms of certified identification; proof of ID (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (typically a Bank Statement no older than three months).

Proof of source of monies is also required under the money laundering laws as lawyers are duty bound to ensure that the monies you are using to acquire a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase price where you are buying mortgage free) has come from legitimate source (such as employment savings) as opposed to the fruits of criminal activity.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Coventry BS are being a right pain. The Wythenshawe solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Coventry BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My wife and I purchased a renovated Edwardian house in Wythenshawe. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wythenshawe and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Wythenshawe is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Wythenshawe are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Wythenshawe you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wythenshawe may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
