Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello - my name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
Yes, this is a new rule because of money laundering
Your Solicitor must be satisfied as to the source of the funds under Money Laundering Act 2002
However, you can request details from your bank under the Data Protection Act and ask for copy statements going back all those years
They have to keep records for a reasonable time. This is normally 6 years but in my experience banks keep them for far longer.
The cost would be £10 to request copy statements under the Act
THE BANK COULD HAVE THIS INFORMATION ON ALL TRANSACTIONS INCLUDING THE SOLICITORS
The Solicitors may not necessarily, but the bank should
Does this answer your question?
I ONLY NEED TO GET RECORDS FROM THE BANK
Yes, if you had a large sum in the account
It will show where the £ came from.
But your old Solicitors may have something in archive or confirm they acted for you
THANKS I WILL GO TO MY BRANCH. BYE
