The lawyer who assisted with my last purchase has quoted £1400 for no sale no fee conveyancing in Harefield. I am hoping to downsize from a purpose built detached home for £200,000. Are the quoted fees excessive? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Harefield?

It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
