We're in Shotton, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Santander , and our solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent told us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their chosen lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Shotton

It is improbable the sellers are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Shotton conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.

I am an executor of my recently deceased parent's Will, with a house in Shotton which is to be marketed. The property is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm told that many purchasers will insist that it is in place before they'll move forward. What's the procedure for this?

In the situation that you have set out it seems sensible to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
