We will charge a fixed basic fee plus VAT and disbursements (i.e. expenses payable to others such as stamp duty and land registry fees). Our full charges will be notified to you at the beginning of the transaction in a clear and open way.
Some transactions may attract stamp duty. Please click here for the HM Revenue & Customs Stamp Duty Calculator (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/sdlt/calculate/calculators.htm).
If the sale or purchase falls through, we will charge a percentage of our quoted fee depending upon how far the transaction has progressed. For example, no more than 75% of our fee will be charged for a case which discontinues prior to ‘exchange of contracts’ (see below for explanation).
Alternatively, for peace of mind, you may choose to take our ‘No Sale No Fee’ Option. An additional fee of either £75 or £125 plus VAT is payable upfront but if the sale or purchase falls through even at the final stage, you will be charged no more for legal fees than the £75 or £125 plus VAT which you have already paid (you would still be liable for any disbursements which had already been incurred).
