My wife and I are soon to exchange on the purchase of a house in Market Rasen but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the owner of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Nationwide are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
Your property lawyer being on a Nationwide approved list is required to disclose to Nationwide of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the price change to Nationwide then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nationwide and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Market Rasen.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Market Rasen? What am I being asked for?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Terms of Engagement that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. If you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your lawyer would not be able to act for you.
