Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Brackla is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?
That would most likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Brackla conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a Brackla based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel solicitors if you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the lender to explore if they make available a monetary alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Brackla.

We previously selected conveyancers located in Brackla on the UBS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me an additional fee for dealing with the UBS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by UBS?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by UBS but by your Brackla property lawyer. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
