In the event thatI was to buy a simple residential homein Tiptree for cash and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Tiptree?
Any savings you would gain would be limited to the Tiptree conveyancing searches. A solicitor still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the sellers solicitor, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.

Do not opt for the cheapest Tiptree conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Leeds Building Society are being pedantic. The Tiptree solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Leeds Building Society are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to sub-let our Tiptree 1st floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Tiptree conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will set out if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Tiptree do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the sublease.
