IfI were to buy a freehold homein Salford mortgage fee and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Salford?
The only reduction in fees you would make on is the costs for searches. The property lawyer is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with your sellers conveyancing practitioner, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.

I am buying a new build house in Salford benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my lawyer about the extras as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. 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.
Are there any distinct advantages to using a high street lawyer in Salford
Plenty of house movers in Salford prefer a nearby high street solicitor so that they can visit if they have concerns, and to deliver paperwork rather than depending on the post.
There is a marginal benefit in using a lawyer local to the property you are purchasing, due to the familiarity of the area and potential local concerns - yet this is debatable. The majority of conveyancers are now via email and may be almost anywhere.
