I am contemplating using an online lawyer ahead of a Marlow conveyancing practice. Should I ‘stay local’?
Advantages do exist in being able to pop in to a local Marlow conveyancing solicitor for example

When comparing quotes, look out for hidden extras. Most decent Marlow high street solicitors give an all-inclusive figure. Often online agents appear to offer low cost prices, yet have hidden 'extras' in the fine print.
