In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Pagham? What am I being asked for?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign should stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Should you are unwilling to supply ID verification documents, your lawyer will not be able to take you on as a client.
I am considering applying for a Bank of Ireland mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Pagham with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Bank of Ireland will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Pagham completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Pagham. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to rent out our Pagham garden flat for a while due to a new job. We used a Pagham conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
The lease governs the relationship between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will say if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Pagham do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the sublease.
