We operate on a fixed fee basis as opposing to charging by reference to hourly rates. Our Fees will be discussed once the transaction has been assessed and will then be agreed with you. They will then be set out in writing and sent to you. If the circumstances throughout the transaction change for example the property is found to be unregistered or leasehold for example the original Fee will be revised, again you will be informed in writing for the fee change at the appropriate point.
