You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Chadderton conveyancing searches.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Chadderton? Is this really warranted?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the ID of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Where you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer can not take you on as a client.
How does conveyancing in Chadderton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Chadderton contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Chadderton tend to acquire the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Chadderton or who has acted in the same development.
