Depending on what type you have (mortice, nightlatch, euro cylinder) will depend on price. I would give it a go myself if I were you.

Theres a web site called

[url]www.myhammer.co.uk[/url]

that allows you to advertise what you need doing (for free) and then tradesmen quote you for the cost to do the work.

I have to say changing a lock is on the easiest DIY jobs to do if you have a yale type

just pop down to B&Q and buy another yale lock, take out the tumbler in your current lock, swap it with the new one, and Bobs your uncle.

if its a DG door its pretty easy - look at teh lock and you'll see two screws, undo these and take it to a shop that sells locks n buy an identical one and then put it back in

Agree with this. I did this myself and frankly I've seen chimps at the zoo who are better with tools than me.

If the actual lock is ok, then just change the barrel (i.e wot u do when u move into a new house). If however the whole lock has had it then slightly bigger job (but not difficult)
