In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Poplar? Is this really warranted?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Poplar conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing where you reside.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to validate not simply the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may lead to your lawyer ending their retainer 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 believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
