We are a predominantly property lawyers. We can offer on most occasions a competitive fixed fee conveyancing service throughout the transaction to ensure that the process is easy and simple. We provide an accurate estimate of all charges, duties and expenses, so you know what finances you will need to have available to fund the transaction. Our previous experience in conveyancing will provide you with the best decision when it comes to buying or selling your property.
We realise that moving home can be a stressful and expensive time and our aim is to make it less stressful and cost effective from the conveyancing side of the transaction.
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:-
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 responsibilityÂ for items lost in the post.
