I am considering remortgaging my apartment in Machen, does my lawyer need to be on the TSB Conveyancing panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the TSB conveyancing panel, but TSB would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Machen. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

We previously instructed solicitors located in Machen on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional charge for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Machen lawyer. Numerous firms on the Coventry BS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices include it on their overall fee.
