After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Brentford. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an advanced payment of £200. Soon after, the conveyancing practitioner called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money 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.

The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Brentford.

The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the residence is over ten years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be enough. They will highlight any obvious problems and recommend additional investigation where appropriate. Where there are any signs of material issues obtain a full structural survey.
