Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Kimberley is not on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer 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 Kimberley conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.
Me and my partner are due to complete buying a house in Kimberley but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but HSBC are not allowing this. Should they have been notified?
Your lawyer that is on the HSBC approved list is duty bound to advise HSBC of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to report the price change to HSBC then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, HSBC and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Kimberley.

I am assisting my step-mother sell her property in Kimberley. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange the energy performance certificate or it is for me to see to?
After the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s was left as a compulsory part of moving property. An energy assessment should be commissioned prior to the property being advertised. It is not something that lawyers normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Kimberley conveyancing practitioner they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with reputable Kimberley accredited person

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
