It is 10 years ago since I bought my property in Catshill. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your lender or they could still be with the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Catshill involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.
How can we tell if a Catshill conveyancing solicitor on the Coventry BS panel is any good?

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Catshill. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an advanced payment of £225. Not long after, the lawyer called me to say that they were not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Co-operative panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
