Can you help - my lawyer says that restrictive coveneant insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Aston Clinton conveyancing?

Is it the case that all Aston Clinton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Santander conveyancing panel?
A selection of lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander.

Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Aston Clinton 5 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know precisely where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you can buy or sell your house without a hitch. If duplicates are not available, your conveyancer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your premises.
I am purchasing my first flat in Aston Clinton with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it would impact my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
