I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would much rather use a high street conveyancing solicitor in West Dulwich?
Do check but the the likelihood is that give you one of their panel solicitors where you accept the "fee-free" offer.

The mortgage over my property is with TSB for my property in West Dulwich. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform TSB?
TSB must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of TSB’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let 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 TSB directly. You need not do this via a TSB conveyancing panel solicitor.
