Proof of the origin of money is necessary in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancer will need to have this information on record. Your Sandy conveyancing practitioner will require evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any money from you into their client account and they should also ask additional questions concerning the origin of funds.

I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Sandy building society branch on numerous occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend.

The conveyancer must follow the CML Handbook Part 2 requirements for your bank.

Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold house in Sandy. Conveyancing and Barnsley Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Sandy who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?

First contact HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion.

Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Sandy conveyancing practices will be used to conveyancing homeson unadopted roads. The property lawyer should investigate title to identify any rights or responsibilities. In many cases there is a residents association that owners pay into for the upkeep of the road. If there is one, the road will likely be maintained and appear nicer than council owned.
