Finally the sale completed on my house in Kentish Town last March but my buyer keeps e-mailing me to say her lawyer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

Following your house sale your conveyancer should deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. If applicable, your lawyer must also send confirmation that the mortgage has been discharged to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in Kentish Town.

What happens if my solicitor is suspended from the HSBC Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Kentish Town?

The first thing to point out is that, 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.
