I am obtaining a offer of a home loan from Santander. I would like to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Buxton. Does the Santander Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Buxton? Is this really necessary?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Terms of Engagement that you need to sign should confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Where you are unwilling to hand over identification documents, your lawyer will not be able to take you on as a client.

Buxton conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with dealing houseson private. Your property lawyer will review the title to find any rights or liabilities. It is possible that there is a residents association that owners pay into for the upkeep of the road. Where one exists, the road will likely be maintained and appear nicer than council adopted.
