The fact that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Avonmouth conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Avonmouth postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Avonmouth.

Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Avonmouth conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.
