In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Forest Gate? What am I being asked for?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Forest Gate conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill evidencing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are required to ascertain not just the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may result in your lawyer cancelling their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your conveyancers will have an obligation to make a disclosure to the appropriate authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Forest Gate. Conveyancing is required. What is next?
Having legally committed yourself to purchase you now have to retain a conveyancing practitioner soon as you will have a tight a fixed date to complete the property. All auction property will ordinarily have a corresponding legal pack. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the auction pack should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork pertinent to leasehold premises. You should hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. You also need to ensure that you have funds organised to complete on the date specified in the contract.
I am the only recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Forest Gate. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in July. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in July. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. Most banks would take a sensible view as this requirement principally exists to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Santander are being a right pain. The Forest Gate solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Santander are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I bought my home on 5 August and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Forest Gate expressed confidence that it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Forest Gate uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Forest Gate registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
