Are the BSA intent on creating a searchable register to to identify solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel for example in Sedbergh?

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Sedbergh. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Sedbergh?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Sedbergh. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
When it comes to lenders such as Yorkshire BS, do Sedbergh conveyancers incur a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
My offer was accepted on a property in Sedbergh on 3/1/2019, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Clydesdale and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Are Clydesdale entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Sedbergh. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
Last September I purchased a leasehold flat in Sedbergh. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
