I am considering applying for a Kent Reliance mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Motspur Park with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Kent Reliance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Motspur Park. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Motspur Park?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Motspur Park. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
I have a mortgage with Skipton for my property in Motspur Park. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Skipton?
Skipton must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies 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 Skipton directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel solicitor.
I am buying a new build house in Motspur Park with a loan from Coventry Building Society. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Motspur Park in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend not give a mortgage on such a premises.

As long as no conflict arises this is permitted. If you are needing mortgage finance then the bank may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific requirements concerning this. For example for Chelsea Building Society as of 28/2/2021, the requirements read as follows :
* there is no conflict of interest and none arises during the transaction
* the firm is a partnership
* the conveyancer acting is not the borrower or a member of the borrower's immediate family.
