I require quick conveyancing in Winsford as I am faced with an ultimatum to complete inside 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to avoid the conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

The deeds to our house are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Winsford 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and get up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.
I am purchasing my first flat in Winsford benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about the extras as it could put at risk my mortgage 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Winsford is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Winsford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Winsford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Winsford may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
