IfI were to purchase a simple residential housein Branston mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Branston?

The conveyancer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with the vendors solicitor, SDLT submission, register the property etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a mortgage but it will not be meaningful.

I have just started marketing my ground floor apartment in Branston. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as normal because all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
