I can't travel far from Hathern. Please spell out why all Hathern solicitors aren't automatically on all bank panels?
As inequitable as it may seem for lenders to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or lawyer’s viewpoint, the the contrary view is that banks are increasingly anxious and feel it necessary to shield themselves from mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a manageable size.
My Hathern lawyer has discovered a discrepancy between the information in the valuation report and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he must ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Hathern? What am I being asked for?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing retainer. The Terms and Conditions that you are required to sign will no doubt reaffirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. If you refuse to supply identification documents, your lawyer would not be able to accept instructions from you.
