Have you wondered about Conveyancing Fees: What's in Our Fixed Fees and how can you access our budget friendly service.
Let’s face it - moderately priced and high quality legal help is hard to come by nowadays. There are service providers who quote you an amount that’s just way out of your budget. On the other hand, some companies may give you one figure, but you find it excludes necessary items! This is why some people are scared to get professional help.
Here at CS Conveyancing Services, however, we pride ourselves with our fixed fee scheme. This gives you the assurance that the amount you’re going to pay won’t be changing. It allows you to plan your expenses, and have the peace of mind you deserve.
But while the process for buying or selling a home in NSW is similar for all transactions, the properties being bought and sold vary greatly in value, and so do conveyancer’s fees--there are no set fees for conveyancers as such. Most conveyancers offer their customers a variety of ways to pay, from hourly rates to fixed fees (also known as a flat fee) to a sliding scale dependent on the property sale price. So how do you know which type of fee payment option is best for you?
With traditional conveyancing fees, the conveyancer is usually paid by the hour, which can quickly make costs balloon out. By contrast, a fixed fee sets the price of performing the work that is within the normal scope of work for a conveyance. Therefore, we generally recommend fixed fee conveyancing as a great way to stay on top of your costs. The costs are transparent, you see exactly where the charges come from, and there’s no nasty surprises at the end.
