I can't travel far from Durrington. Please spell out why all Durrington conveyancers are not on all bank panels?
Banks ordinarily impose restrictions on either the nature or volume of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Frequent examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm needs to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the structure of firm, some banks for instance HSBC made a decision to reduce the size of their panel they permit to act for them. It is worth noting that building societies have no liability for the standard of conveyancing given by any Durrington conveyancer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was the key driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels from 2008 even though there are conflicting assessments about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data published by HM Land Registry indicates that thousands of conveyancing practices only carry out a couple of conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel pruning question why conveyancing firms deserve claim to remain on a lender panel when clearly property law is not their speciality?

I'm the single recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Durrington. The Durrington property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. many banks would take a pragmatic view as this obligation is principally there to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

We had selected solicitors located in Durrington on the TSB solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional sum for handling the TSB mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by TSB?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by TSB but by your Durrington lawyer. Plenty of firms on the TSB panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some practices include it on their overall fee.
