We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would prefer to instruct a Swadlincote based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel conveyancers should you want the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender to ask if they allow a cash alternative.

I am purchasing my first flat in Swadlincote with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my solicitor about the deal as it could jeopardize my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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%.
