The fees for this service are payable to the Conveyancer directly but we have agreed that they will be fixed at £595* inclusive of VAT but plus disbursements. This means that disbursements (charges incurred by the Conveyancer on your behalf and necessary to complete the conveyance) are on top of this fee. The Conveyancer will confirm all of these charges in advance.
* This fixed fee is based on a freehold sale. If your property is leasehold or involves help to buy mortgages or multiple mortgages you will need to discuss this with the Conveyancer who will agree the fee in advance. If you are in any doubt please clarify this with your Conveyancer or a member of our team as soon as possible.

If you wish to utilise your 14 day “cooling off period” we will not make your Instruction live on the Site (see above). You are, if you choose to do so, able to make the Instruction immediately live, however you must pay us for the Services in full, as the making of the Instruction live constitutes the performance of the Services.

If you exercise your right to cancel the contract within the 14 days we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Services for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. Refunds will be issued within 14 days of you notifying us that you wish to cancel the contract.
5.13. Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind.
You can end the contract at any time. You can ask us to remove the Property from the Site at any time, however, once you have waived the “cooling-off period or it has expired, you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid as these will have been incurred in preparing the listing and in the administration of the Site.
5.14. Marketing Break.
If you do not wish to end the contract but would rather take a break from advertising the Property, we can do so for up to 2 calendar months. Once the period has expired the Property will be re-listed on the Site automatically.

We reserve the right to modify the Instruction (and in particular the use of any photograph) if we consider that it is inappropriate, inaccurate, misleading or likely to cause offence in any way.
5.18. Delay in providing Services.
We will not be responsible for the late performance of the Services or not supplying any part of them or any misleading description of the Property if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need or providing inaccurate information.
