Please explain the implications if my solicitor is removed from the TSB Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in St Mary Cray?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. 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 for a fee.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in St Mary Cray I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in St Mary Cray in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
