Quoting for your Transaction

We will send you a quote for costs and disbursements together with a Client Care bundle. Our charges are fixed and there may also be expenses we incur directly on your behalf (disbursements; which includes things such as search fees and land registry fees).   Value of added tax at the current rate will also be added to our costs.

The estimate we send you assumes that the transaction proceeds smoothly. Certain issues may result in having to revisit the estimate as the matter proceeds. This could include things such as

  • Problems with the title of the property
  • Problems with the boundaries of the property
  • Unexpected issues raised in searches
  • Problematic or incomplete documentation supplied either by your lender or yourself

Mortgage Issues

The above list is not intended to be exhaustive but should any such issues arrive we’ll provide you with a revised estimate at that stage and explain the reasons why the estimate has needed to be revisited.

If your transaction does not proceed for whatever reason we will still charge you fees and disbursements for the work we have carried out to that date.
