Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Wadebridge who acted for me two years ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house move (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a home loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Should I look for a cheaper online property lawyer?
