My apartment in Hendon is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does my lawyer have to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

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.
