We are selling our house in Gosport. Will the conveyancer need to be required to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Kent Reliance 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 requirements fairly frequently in recent years.
We are downsizing from our house in Gosport and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Gosport. We have lived in Gosport for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Gosport?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Gosport.

Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
My solicitors in Gosport have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the lender Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
