Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Frinton On Sea. Is there a reason why all Frinton On Sea conveyancers aren't included on all mortgage company panels?

As a consequence of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their conveyancing panel to a manageable size.

I'm buying a new build house in Frinton On Sea benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about this deal as it may put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
