In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Nannerch? Is this really warranted?
It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Nannerch. However these days you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing process in the absence submitting evidence of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a council tax bill. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as proof of ID it must be both the paper part as well as the photo card part, one is not acceptable in the absence of the other.
Verification of your origin of funds is necessary in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor must have this information on file. Your Nannerch conveyancing lawyer will need to see evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any funds from you into their client account and they may also ask further questions concerning the source of monies.
