I am refinancing my apartment in Connahs Quay, does my lawyer need to be on the Co-operative Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, but Co-operative would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

I'm buying my first flat in Connahs Quay benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead.

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.
What are the specific benefits to choosing a local conveyancer in Connahs Quay
Many buyers and sellers in Connahs Quay select a nearby high street conveyancer so that they can visit if they have questions, and to deliver documents rather than run the risk of relying on the post.
One could allege that there is a slight benefit when opting for a property lawyer local to a premises you are purchasing, due to the familiarity of the region and potential local issues - but this is moot. Many conveyancers are now by way of email and may be practically anywhere.
