Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Chalfont St Peter who acted for me two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Yorkshire Building Society. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Should I look for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Chalfont St Peter conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will give their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
I'm buying a property in Chalfont St Peter. I can find my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't find my lawyer's name on the list. Is this a big problem?
