What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Hopton? What am I being asked for?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign should stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. Should you are unwilling to provide ID verification documents, your solicitor would not be able to act for you.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Hopton?

An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Hopton I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hopton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

My conveyancer (who is 260 kilometers awayneeds me to sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Hopton who can witness this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Hopton
