Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Royal Tunbridge Wells who conducted the legals two years ago and wanted a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Clydesdale. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Stick with what I know or should I try and find a cheaper online conveyancer?
