In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to check not simply the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will result in your conveyancer terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
