I was informed recently by my financial adviser that my Finsbury Park lawyer is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. How can I be certain whether this is indeed the case?

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Finsbury Park? Why is this being asked of me?
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 retainer. The Client Care letter that you need to sign should reaffirm 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 hand over ID verification documents, your solicitor would not be able to act for you.

I have recently realised that I have 68 years remaining on my flat in Finsbury Park. I am keen to extend my lease but my freeholder is absent. What options are available to me?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you have done all that could be expected to track down the freeholder. For most situations a specialist may be helpful to try and locate and to produce a report to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Finsbury Park.
