IfI was to purchase a straightforward housein Colnbrook for cash and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Colnbrook?

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
