In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Buckley? Why is this being asked of me?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Buckley conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing your correct address.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are duty bound to ascertain not simply the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will result in your solicitor terminating their retainer 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 inform the relevant authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
I am being told by my lawyer that missing deeds insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Buckley?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Virgin Money. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Buckley. I have a mortgage offer with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Buckley building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Buckley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
The solicitor must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
