What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Camborne? Is this really necessary?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
