Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Whittlesey

I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must leave my let out flat in Whittlesey by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?

Generally one should not serve notice on a rental until exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not already done so, notify to your lawyer and request that they chase the owners solicitors, try to a target completion date that everyone will aim to achieve

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Whittlesey? Why is this being asked of me?

To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Whittlesey conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing where you live.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are duty bound to ascertain not only the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this may result in your conveyancer ending their relationship 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 relevant authorities should they consider that any monies received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.

My conveyancer has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Whittlesey conveyancing?

The right level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
