In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Deal? Is this really necessary?

It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Deal. However these days you can not complete any conveyancing deal without first supplying proof of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a bank statement. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as proof of identification it must be both the paper section as well as the photo card part, one is not acceptable in the absence of the other.

Proof of the source of money is required under Money Laundering Regulations. You should not be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor must have this information on record. Your Deal conveyancing practitioner will need to see evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any monies from you into their client account and they will also ask further queries regarding the source of funds.

I have paid off my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Deal conveyancing practitioner on the Principality panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Principality mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Principality mortgage from the register. Principality, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Principality has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Principality has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Principality mortgage has been paid off.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Deal building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Deal conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the mortgage company approved list, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 left on the lease.

About to purchase apartment in Deal. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Deal solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
