Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bedfont

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Bedfont is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?

That is most likely a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Bedfont conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

My wife and I are getting closer to an exchange on a flat in Bedfont and my mum and dad have sent the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I disclosed to the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?

Your solicitor is legally required to clarify with the bank to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Bedfont? What am I being asked for?

In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Bedfont conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill evidencing your correct address.

Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are duty bound to check not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will lead to your solicitor terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers are duty bound to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
