We adhere to a fee structure that conforms to the recommended conveyancing tariff. Specifically, bond fees are assessed based on the bond's value, while transfer fees are calculated in relation to the property's selling price.

In the case of high-volume or bulk conveyancing matters, we are open to crafting a specialized fee arrangement tailored to the specific needs of the situation.

For the Winding-up of Deceased Estates, our fees are established in accordance with the prescribed tariff, amounting to 3.5% exclusive of VAT, computed on the gross estate value.

In the domain of litigation and commercial matters, our billing is based on hourly rates, with charges contingent upon the scope and complexity of the work involved.
