Please help. My Cherry Burton conveyancer is advising me that he has toconduct Cherry Burton conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Nat Westconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner 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 specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cherry Burton conveyancing searches.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Cherry Burton? Why is this being asked of me?
To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Cherry Burton conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are duty bound to investigate not just the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may lead to your solicitor ending their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers will have an obligation to inform the relevant authorities should they believe that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
I am considering refinancing my property in Cherry Burton, does my lawyer need to be on the Nottingham Solicitor panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Nottingham will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
My husband and I are 18 days into a residential purchase having been referred to solicitors by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Cherry Burton. We are not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?

We have instructed a Cherry Burton conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (first time buyers) and have picked up in the terms and conditions that they are not covered by the Financial Conduct Authority. Should I be concerned or is that the norm with conveyancing practitioner?
We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They will be governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who have strict rules in relation to funds deposited in their bank.
