I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must leave my let out apartment in Woburn Sands by 4/6/2019. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. How realistic is it to complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?

My wife and I are at the point of looking at flats in Woburn Sands and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancing practitioner appointed at this point? I intend to finance via a mortgage with HSBC.
You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the estate agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with HSBC, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I'm buying a new build house in Woburn Sands benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about this deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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%.
