Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the HSBC Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Earls Barton?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

22 days into buying a house in Earls Barton. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the title is "Leasehold". Does this make a difference on our mortgage valuation?
Earls Barton conveyancing does not usually involve leasehold houses. The main factor here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the value significantly.
At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a significant impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be set out in the lease which should be made available to your conveyancer.
