Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Symonds Yat

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Symonds Yat? Is this really necessary?

You are right in the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Symonds Yat. Nowadays you can not proceed with any conveyancing transaction without first handing over evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a utility bill. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of ID it needs to be both the paper section as well as the photo card part, one is not satisfactory without the other.

Verification of your origin of funds is mandated in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations.

Your Symonds Yat conveyancing lawyer will require evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any monies from you into their client account and they may also ask additional questions concerning the source of funds.

My husband and I wish to acquire a newly converted flat in Symonds Yat with a mortgage from HSBC Bank.We use our Symonds Yat conveyancing solicitor but HSBC Bank informed us he's not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with little choice but to instruct a HSBC Bank panel firm or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that HSBC Bank use our lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the HSBC Bank conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for HSBC Bank
