IfI were to buy a freehold homein Pwllheli for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Pwllheli?
The only saving you would make on is the Pwllheli conveyancing searches. A conveyancer is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, correspond with the sellers property lawyer, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it will not be a lot.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Pwllheli benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
What does commercial conveyancing in Pwllheli cover?

My lawyers in Pwllheli have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the lender Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
