In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Appleton? Is this really necessary?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Appleton conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are required to investigate not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will lead to your lawyer terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers will have an obligation to notify the relevant authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Appleton is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Appleton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Appleton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Appleton 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.

Notwithstanding that your last Appleton conveyancing lawyer is no longer available you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the apartment. The accepted inference is that if the lease is silent, subletting is permitted. There may be a precondition that you are obliged to obtain permission via your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. This means that you cannot sublet without prior permission. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord for their consent.
