I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years built) in Beaworthy. 95% of the properties are already occupied. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Beaworthy?

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the TSB Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Beaworthy?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
Will my lawyer be making enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Beaworthy.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Beaworthy. Some people will buy a house in Beaworthy, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Beaworthy. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to discover whether the premises has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect response. A purchaser’s lawyers will also commission an enviro report. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be initiated.
I am buying my first flat in Beaworthy with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this extras as it may put at risk my loan 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.
