In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Coleford? Is this really necessary?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer. The Terms and Conditions that you are required to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. If you refuse to hand over ID verification documents, your solicitor would not be able to accept instructions from you.
We are planning to move property in May. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Coleford. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your property agent but this should only take place after the sellers lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you will need to inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Coleford or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Coleford.
My conveyancer has informed me that flying freehold insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Coleford conveyancing?

Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Coleford is approved on their conveyancing panel?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel.
