I need some fast conveyancing in Staines as I am faced with an ultimatum to complete within 2 weeks. Luckily I do not need a mortgage. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save money and time?

Me and my brother have a terraced Victorian property in Staines. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Staines and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
I am buying a new build house in Staines benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it would impact my loan with the bank. 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.
