AssumingI were to purchase a straightforward propertyin Chesham for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Chesham?
Any savings you would achieve would be limited to the costs for searches. A conveyancing practitioner is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with your vendors property lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the title etc. A marginal saving might be made by not having to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please supply a car parking plan. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
I decided to have a survey done on a house in Chesham in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to give a loan on such a house.

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to locate the lessor. In some cases a specialist should be useful to try and locate and to produce a report to be used as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on devolving into the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Chesham.
I inherited a garden flat in Chesham, conveyancing having been completed February 2000. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Chesham with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2079
With 60 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
