In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Keswick? Why is this being asked of me?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Keswick 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 showing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are duty bound to ascertain not just 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 lead to your conveyancer terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers are duty bound to inform the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

We do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Keswick or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Keswick.

Your solicitor should review the deeds as conveyancing in Keswick can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain changes or need the consent of another owner. Certain works call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

As solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be overseen by the CLC.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Keswick. Conveyancing and Barclays mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing practitioner in Keswick who previously acted has long since retired. Any advice?
First contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Keswick conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
