In the event thatI was to buy a simple residential propertyin Stotfold for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Stotfold?
Any savings you would achieve would be limited to the disbursement for searches.

How does conveyancing in Stotfold differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Stotfold approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Stotfold usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Stotfold or who has acted in the same development.
We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we use their preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Stotfold
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Stotfold conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
