How do we pay you?

For Property transactions, our fees are presented up front and are agreed at the time of engagement, they are then deducted when the funds arrive in our account. In some cases an alternative agreement is made but this is always done very early in the process so that you, and us, know exactly what is agreed. For general services such as Wills, we will invoice you once the work is complete.
