Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Isle of Dogs who acted for me 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of similar values with a loan from Chelsea Building Society. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper internet firm of conveyancing solicitor?
