In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Woodley? What am I being asked for?
It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your lawyer has nothing to do with conveyancing in Woodley. However these days you can not proceed with any conveyancing transaction in the absence providing proof of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a bank statement. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as proof of identification it needs to be both the paper part as well as the photo card part, one is not sufficient without the other.

My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Woodley and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Woodley. Having lived in Woodley for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
