1. This list is non-exhaustive. We will quote separate fees for any transaction, which we think, is not straightforward or for any additional work, which is not shown in this table. Normally, we will do it in good time.
2. This Table applies to all conveyancing transactions involving purchases and sales of residential properties up to the value of £1,000,000.00, each. If the value exceeds this amount, we will give a specific quote, upon request.
3. Our minimum fees based on the value of any transaction (up to a value of £400,000.00), is £800.00 plus any applicable additional fees.
4. VAT as appropriate will be payable on top of all our fees.
5. Disbursements are not included in our fees. These are, mainly, all fees paid for searches such as a Local Authority Search, Stamp Duty, Land Registry fees, or any other expense which becomes payable on behalf of the client to any third parties such as a Landlord of a leasehold property for registering a Notice of Assignment. These too will be payable on top of all our fees.
6. In some cases, our partners will allow discounts on our fees depending on the nature and the circumstances of a particular transaction such as prior knowledge of the client, or the property.
7. We quote our fees on the basis that all work will progress on a straightforward manner to an exchange of contracts and completion thereafter. However, we will revise our quote if the transaction becomes complex at any time due to change in circumstances.
8. We will confirm all our quotes in writing once the client confirms our instructions to proceed.
9. As the transaction progresses, from time to time, we will review and revise all our quotes as necessary and let the client know about it.
10. Generally, our quotes will cover all the work that we do from taking initial instructions and up to and including notifying the client of the conclusion of the transaction.
11. We will make pro- rata refunds to clients if a transaction does not proceed to exchange and completion for any good reason, depending on the circumstances.
12. In our experience, normally, a purchase or sale would take about three months to complete from the time we issue or receive the draft documents, as appropriately.
