What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Ingatestone? Why is this being asked of me?
You are right in the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Ingatestone. However these days you can not proceed with any conveyancing transaction in the absence supplying proof of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a council tax bill. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as proof of ID it needs to be both the paper element as well as the photo card part, one is not satisfactory without the other.

I am considering applying for a Nationwide mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Ingatestone with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Nationwide will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Ingatestone and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Ingatestone. We have lived in Ingatestone for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Ingatestone I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ingatestone suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
