Many of our clients are property developers and investors and as such we have a wealth of experience and understanding as to the requirements of dealing with such transactions. We are cautious and thorough at every stage of the transaction to ensure that the conclusion is successful and concludes promptly and efficiently.

We tailor our service to meet your personal demands and needs. One fee earner can be assigned to deal with all of your transactions to ensure continuity and so that a familiar relationship of trust and confidence can be established.

Client Identification and Money Laundering

In a bid to tackle serious organised crime, since 2003 new anti-money laundering laws have been implemented. Under these laws, solicitors undertaking certain types of work have more onerous reporting and record-keeping requirements that must be adhered to.

Accordingly, we take a robust approach in respect of our requirements and will require from all clients, without exception, documentary evidence verifying that they are who they say they are and where they live, and evidence as to the source of funds, in order to satisfy our obligations. For that purpose, before we carry out any work on your behalf, we require at least two original documents to confirm your identity and address, such as:-

  • Passport or full (picture) driving licence AND
  • Receipted utility bill (but not mobile bills) less than 3 months old, or Council Tax statement for the current year
  • Evidence of the source of funds

We will take copies of these documents for our records. If you are unable to attend at our office with your ID then we will require copies certified by a Solicitor or someone that is FCA registered or the post office. We will also undertake an electronic ID check.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to take any steps on your behalf until we have received adequate identification documents and evidence as to the source of funds to enable us to carry out our client due diligence. If you delay in sending these it will delay the transaction. We do not recommend that you send important documents through the post as we cannot accept any responsibility for items lost in the post.
