Whether the matter is fixed fee, or based on an hourly rate, we will inform you if any unforeseen extra work becomes necessary ‐ for example, due to unexpected difficulties or if your requirements or the circumstances change significantly during the matter. We will also inform you of the estimated cost of the extra work before incurring these extra costs. If possible, we will attempt to agree an amended charge with you. If you prefer to set a limit beyond which we would not go without your authority then please let us know.
If you do not pay our bill on completion of the sale or purchase, payment is due within 28 days of us sending you the bill. If you do not pay the bill within 28 days we will charge interest on it at 2% per annum above the current base rate of Royal Bank of Scotland Plc. This interest may be charged from the date on which payment of your bill is due. If you have any query about the bill you should contact Julian straight away.
You may terminate your instructions to us in writing at any time. For example, you may decide you cannot give us clear or proper instructions on how to proceed, or you may lose confidence in our work. We are entitled to keep all your papers and documents while money is owing to us.
We will decide to stop acting for you only with good reason and on giving you reasonable notice. If you or we decide that we will stop acting for you, then we will submit a bill to you for our charges on an hourly basis and expenses as set out earlier.
We are sure that you will understand that in the event of any accounts or requests for payment being unpaid that this may delay the progress of your matter. In these circumstances, we do reserve the right not to act any further but you will be liable for all fees incurred to that date.
Your continued instructions will amount to your acceptance of these terms of business.
