Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Nationwide Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Spilsby?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Spilsby. The Spilsby property was put into my name in March. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. Most banks would take a sensible view as this clause primarily exists to capture subsales or the flipping of properties.

Intending to buy a apartment in Spilsby. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Spilsby conveyancer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.
