Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Glossop is not on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Glossop conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

I am considering applying for a HSBC mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Glossop with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for HSBC ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but HSBC 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.
