It has come to my attention via my broker that my Wandsworth property lawyer is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain whether this is indeed the case?
The sensible course of action for you to take is to contact your Wandsworth conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.
We are due to exchange buying a house in Wandsworth but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the owner of £3k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Your lawyer that is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is required to inform Kent Reliance of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Wandsworth.
Are the BSA intent on creating a searchable register to list solicitors on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Wandsworth?

I am buying my first flat in Wandsworth with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the lender. 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.
