In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Polperro? What am I being asked for?
Polperro conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property practitioners accross the UK have a duty under money laundering regulations to check the ID of any client with a view to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Polperro. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I want to move.

Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. Some mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
