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.

Have purchased a a terraced house in Poplar , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Poplar conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Poplar registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested persons or bodies. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the buyer is living at the property therefore post completion formalities is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Poplar is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Poplar are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Poplar may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.

Can I find out who is the owner of a house in Poplar?

Assuming that the property is recorded at HMLR, and you have the details of the location of the property, you will be able to see details from the the Land Registry of the registered owner for a a minimal charge.
