Me and my fiance are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Trearddur Bay with a mortgage. We have a Trearddur Bay conveyancer, but the lender advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or retain our Trearddur Bay lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We regard this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Trearddur Bay conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I'm the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Trearddur Bay. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement principally exists to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

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 Trearddur Bay solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
I am intending to sublet my leasehold apartment in Trearddur Bay. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?
Notwithstanding that your previous Trearddur Bay conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can review your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the property. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you are obliged to obtain consent via your landlord or some other party before subletting. This means that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining permission. The consent must not not be unreasonably turned down. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.
