No Sale – No Fee

If your property transaction does not reach a conclusion then you will not be charged a fee. All we will charge you is the ‘disbursements’ – expenses – that we have had to pay out to third parties on your behalf.

No Hidden Costs, and No Jargon

You will find all KTP property lawyers communicate straightforwardly in plain English. Our communication is not the only thing that is straightforward; our fees are too. We will quote you a fixed fee for your conveyancing or property transaction before we start and guarantee that there will be no hidden charges along the way. Should any unanticipated expenses arise we will let you know immediately.
