IfI were to acquire a simple residential homein Leighton Buzzard for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Leighton Buzzard?

The only reduction in fees you would make on is the disbursement for searches. A property lawyer still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your vendors lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the title etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a mortgage however it won't be a lot.

I purchased a freehold premises in Leighton Buzzard yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Leighton Buzzard and has limited impact for conveyancing in Leighton Buzzard but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

Me and my brother purchased a renovated Victorian house in Leighton Buzzard. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and The Mortgage Works. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Leighton Buzzard and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
