We are purchasing our first home. Our solicitor has contact usto enquire if we wish to order supplemental conveyancing searches. As novices we have no idea as to what's relevant for conveyancing in Harold Park
The quantity and type of Harold Park conveyancing searches should be dictated entirely on the property, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your familiarity of the region and risks, your general appetite to risk. What matters is that you adequately comprehend what information each search could give you. You may then decide if you consider that you need that information. Where you are unsure, ask the conveyancer to recommend.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Harold Park? What am I being asked for?
Harold Park conveyancing solicitors and indeed property practitioners accross the UK have an obligation under money laundering regulations to check the identity of any client in order to ensure that clients are who they say they are.
Conveyancing clients are required to disclose two forms of certified identification; proof of identity (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (usually a Utility Bill no older than three months).
Evidence of the origin of monies is also necessary under the money laundering regulations as solicitors are duty bound to check that the money you are utilising to acquire a property (be it the exchange deposit or the total purchase price if you are a cash purchaser) has originated from an acceptable source (such as an inheritance) rather than the proceeds of illegitimate activity.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Harold Park is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Harold Park are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Harold Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Harold Park may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
