In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Flamborough? Is this really warranted?
It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Flamborough. However these days you will not be able to complete any conveyancing transaction without first handing over evidence of your identity.

How does conveyancing in Flamborough differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Flamborough contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Flamborough usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Flamborough or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Flamborough I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease.

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
