Leytonstone conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property practitioners throughout the UK have a duty under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules 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 ID (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (usually a Utility Bill no more than three months).

Confirmation of the origin of funds is also required under the money laundering regulations as conveyancers are duty bound to ensure that the monies you are using to purchase a property (be it the exchange deposit or the total purchase price if you are a cash purchaser) has come from an acceptable source (such as an inheritance) as opposed to the product of illegitimate activity.
