What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Kings Norton? Why is this being asked of me?
You are right in the requirement set out by your lawyer has nothing to do with conveyancing in Kings Norton. However these days you can not proceed with any conveyancing process in the absence supplying evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a bank statement. Please note that if you are providing your driving licence as proof of identification it needs to be both the paper section and photo card part, one is not acceptable without the other.

I am selling my flat in Kings Norton. Will my conveyancing practitioner have to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.
I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Kings Norton. The Kings Norton property was put into my name in October. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in October. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this obligation principally exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
