What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Bayswater? What am I being asked for?
You are right in the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Bayswater. However these days you will not be able to complete any conveyancing transaction without first providing proof of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a bank statement. Remember if you are supplying your driving licence as evidence of identification it needs to be both the paper part as well as the photo card part, one is not acceptable in the absence of the other.
Verification of your origin of monies is required in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Please do not be offended when when this is requested of you as your lawyer will need to retain this information on file. Your Bayswater conveyancing solicitor will require evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any monies from you into their client account and they will also ask further questions regarding the origin of funds.
How does conveyancing in Bayswater differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Bayswater come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Bayswater tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bayswater or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking at a couple of flats in Bayswater which have about fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?
A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the saleability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. Sometimes it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
