I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Battersea. Almost all the flats have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Battersea?
You are opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in refusing to carrying out Battersea conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would seriously advise in the strongest possible terms that your conveyancer conducts them. Where speed and price are top of your issues you should consider with your conveyancer about the options such as contingency insurance available to you

I am purchasing my first flat in Battersea with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
