Ever since there were Lawyers, their fees have been the subject of concern, if not aggravation, to the populace. Maybe, because once you have to go to Law, there is a problem which you really could do without. Hence, when there is a dispute we seek the possibility of a compromise at an early stage before the costs mount up. A compromise, by its very nature, means that neither party is totally satisfied with the outcome, but we hope that earlier outcome is better than battling through the Courts and it costing more, at the end of the day.
Residential conveyancing fees have always been a prickly subject. However, when we give you a quote, we stick to it. The only extras are disbursements or monies that we have to pay out and, of course, those disbursements would be standard wherever you go.
But what do we find when we start looking at our competitors in the marketplace? We give you a fixed fee. But what do they do? You get told that there is a “basic fee” which looks all very attractive. But then there are all the extra fees that go on top. So what looked cheap is not cheap in reality. But do you want a cheap service, in any event?
We pride ourselves in the service that we give to our clients, and conveyancing transactions are no exception. At the end of the day, “you get what you pay for”. So beware!
