After what seems like an age a loan agreement from NatWest for the remortgage of my 3 room maisonette is due within the next few days. Are you able to recommend a low cost conveyancing solicitor in Mold?

Having invested time researching online forums for a cheap solicitor in Mold, most say that I must use a CQS assured solicitor. What is CQS?
Mold Conveyancing Quality Scheme solicitors have been granted accreditation under the Law Society's Scheme (CQS) CQS was brought about to promote high standards in the home moving process. CQS helps buyers and sellers to recognise solicitor firms that provide a quality residential conveyancing. Mold is one of the many areas in England and Wales in which CQS are based. The scheme requires practices to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self-certification, spot checks and yearly assessments in order to maintain CQS status. It is open only to members of the Law Society who meet the demanding standards set by the scheme and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
I am buying a new build house in Mold with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it will adversely affect my loan with Virgin Money. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Am I best advised to instruct a Mold conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can handle the legal formalities but they are based 300kilometers away.
The primary upside of using a local Mold conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Mold know how is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and the majority were happy that must trump using an unknown Mold conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.
