I am selling my home in Mile End. Will the conveyancer have to be required to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the HSBC 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 conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

I am buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Mile End. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to ascertain if these works were previously refused?
Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Mile End will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of works or require the consent of another owner. Many extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
I currently have a mortgage with Clydesdale for my property in Mile End. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Clydesdale?
You must advise Clydesdale in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Clydesdale will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Clydesdale directly. You need not do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel solicitor.
