Recently contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Ambleside who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing costs illustration based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Nottingham Building Society. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative conveyancer?
The quote is fractionally on the steep side. If you shop around you could shave off some of the expense by as much as £100 plus VAT. That being said, if you were pleased with the conveyancing the firm offered you couldcome to rue opting for an a cheaper lawyer. Remember to be sure the firm can also act for Nottingham Building Society.

I am mortgaging my property in Ambleside, does my lawyer have to be on the Virgin Money Solicitor panel?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, but Virgin Money would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
