In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Altrincham conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing where you live.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to investigate not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will lead to your solicitor ending 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 appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
