In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Greenwich? Is this really necessary?
You are right in these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Greenwich. Nowadays you can not complete any conveyancing deal if you have not supplying evidence of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a council tax bill. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as proof of ID it needs to be both the paper element and photo card part, one is not satisfactory in the absence of the other.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Greenwich. I have a mortgage agreed with Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Greenwich. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an on account payment of £200. Shortly after, the solicitor contacted me to say that they were not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nottingham panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I acquired my home on 7 February and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Greenwich said it will be formalised inside ten days. Are titles in Greenwich particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Greenwich registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the property therefore an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
