Ai Law Pricing

General Information on Fees

When you instruct us we will provide you with a fee quote for the matter. In carrying out an instruction, we may also incur the fees of a third party on your behalf (for example, barristers or property search fees) and you agree to be liable for these as part of our service. We reserve the right to raise interim bills for work carried out as the matter progresses which shall become due immediately. The outcome of a matter cannot be guaranteed and you shall be liable to pay our fees. Such liability is not altered by the success result or outcome of the matter, unless our bespoke terms of engagement specify differently.

In calculating our fees we take into account the value, complexity, time and urgency of an instruction. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the basis of our charges will be by reference to the time we spend on your matter. Our hourly rates will be provided. Where a fixed fee or agreed I.R.O or fee estimate is given, this will be the agreed fee at the outset. We may adjust that sum to reflect the nature and complexity of the matter. We will endeavor to inform you of any change to fees in advance.

Our Approach to Fees

Our approach is to seek to charge a fee that both parties (you and us) can be reasonably happy with. We are highly confident in the service we provide and understand the importance of providing good value for service; our quotes reflect this by being reasonable based on market rate, workload, complexity, and timeframes. Ultimately, your positive experience and satisfaction by using Ai Law is the cornerstone for how we measure our success as a firm.

For Commercial Services and Bespoke Quotes

Our Methods of Charging

Our methods of charging will depend on the service and will either be:

  • Hourly Rate
  • Price in Region of Estimate
  • Success Fee
  • Fixed Fee
  • Staged Fixed Fees
  • Bespoke Retainer

In addition to the time that we spend, we take into account various other factors including the complexity of the issues involved in the matter, the speed at which action must be taken, the expertise or specialist knowledge that the matter requires and, if appropriate, the value of the property or subject matter involved. Our rates may be adjusted upwards if, for example, the matter becomes more complex than expected or must be carried out in an emergency or out of hours.

Retainer Options

We offer ongoing retainers, suited to those that are looking for a law firm partner. We are able to agree a bespoke retainer agreement with you so that you always have us by your side. Our retainer is aimed at SME businesses and our VIP clients for which you receive priority service and a one-stop shop advising on a range of commercial areas to help your business succeed.

A bespoke retainer designed just for you.

The retainer is a monthly fee payable under our standard commercial terms. All matters are overseen by a senior member of our commercial team and your instructions received are carried out as required. The monthly fee shall go towards fees chargeable for each and every instruction, which shall be made known to you in the usual way. In the event that there is a shortfall on the account, we would request a top-up to the retainer. For example, if agreeing a retainer of £10,000 per month, multiple instructions would be carried out as you require. In the event our fees were to exceed £10,000 across the board, we would request a top-up of our account. In these circumstances we would speak with you to assess your needs and come to an arrangement.

We find the retainer option works best for active businesses who need advisory and transactional legal advice to assist on their day-to-day business activities. Instructions as example, include ad hoc advice, contract reviews, employment services, dispute resolution, lending and refinancing, investment transactions and acquisitions. We see the benefit to using our retainer option rather than taking multiple independent instructions because we are available at short notice and acquire a distinct knowledge of our retained clients allowing us to act fast, pragmatic and be effective.

If you are interested in retaining us on an ongoing basis, please contact us so that we can assess your needs and how best to accommodate you.

Our Fee Levels and Basis for Charges

 

The Solicitors Regulation Authority Price Transparency Rules require us to display our prices for certain areas. Those services relevant to Ai Law are set out below.

real Estate Services

Residential Conveyancing

Conveyancing executives or licensed conveyancers will carry out most of the work. Legal executives also under the supervision of a qualified solicitor may conduct some work.

The following information applies to the purchase of freehold residential property on behalf of members of the public (that is to say, individuals).

Basis of our charges

The main factors which determine our charges are the following:

  • The value of the property (because this affects the amount of risk we assume)
  • The amount of work involved. This will be influenced by the presence of any complicating factors (see below)
  • In some instances, the location.

Sale and purchase

Where we are instructed to act on a sale as well as a purchase, we will charge a separate fee for the sale on the basis that they are two separate (but usually co-ordinated) transactions. The fees for the sale element are set out elsewhere on this website and will depend on whether the second property is freehold or leasehold.

Fees for “standard” transactions

The fees we quote cover all of the work we do (but not the third party expenses we incur on your behalf) to complete the purchase of your new home, including dealing with registration at the Land Registry and arranging for payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (if the property is in England) or Land Transaction Tax (if the property is in Wales). In the event that a transaction is complex or becomes protracted we reserve the right to charge more. We will speak with you about this as and when such instance may occur during the transaction.

Please see the section below for likely third party expenses.

For a standard freehold purchase, our fee ranges are as set out below:

Value of property and range of typical fees:

Up to £250,000

  • The value of the property is no more than £1,000,000 (bespoke quote available on request)
  • no unforeseen matters arise including, for example (but not limited to), a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
  • the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise
  • all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties in providing documentation
  • no indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required

Non-standard transactions

The fee table above does not apply to non-standard transactions, which are ones which feature one or more of the following complicating factors:

  • we are required to liaise with separate solicitors for your mortgage lender
  • the property is unregistered
  • the property is a new build
  • there is a requirement for Islamic finance
  • a shared ownership scheme is involved
  • there is a help to buy scheme element
  • there is an ISA involved
  • the purchase is taking place under the right to buy legislation
  • the property has been repossessed
  • the purchase is taking place at an auction
  • where our client is based overseas or is a company, as this will usually involve enhanced due diligence

If the transaction is non-standard for any of these reasons, we would be very pleased to provide a bespoke quote on enquiry.

Third Party Expenses
Typically, we will incur the following expenses on your behalf. These are in addition to our own fees:

Search fees – £300 – £500 (the precise amount depends on the local authority);

HM Land Registry fees – the amount will depend on the purchase price. Details of these fees can be found here.

Stamp Duty Land Tax/Land Transaction Tax – This depends on the value of your property. You can calculate the amount by using HMRC’s website (or, in the case of Land Transaction Tax where the property is in Wales). Please note that this calculator is not applicable if you intend to purchase the property in the name of a company. You may also require further advice beyond this calculator depending on your particular circumstances, or you may require tax structuring advice. In that event, our conveyancing team would be supported by a specialist Tax Partner who will be happy to advise you further and who would provide you with a separate estimate of their costs for providing this specialist advice.

VAT at 20% is chargeable on our fees.

So that the process is as smooth as possible, we will normally pay these expenses on your behalf provided you pay us.

Typical Stages of the process

The precise stages involved will vary according to the circumstances. However, they will typically include the following:

  • taking your instructions and giving you initial advice

  • exchanging contracts and notifying you that this has happened
  • arranging for all monies needed to be received from lender and you
  • completing purchase
  • dealing with payment of Stamp Duty/Land Tax
  • dealing with application for registration at Land Registry

How long will the transaction take?

The time between your offer being accepted to your being able to move into your new home will depend on a number of factors but the typical range is 8 to 12 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower than this, depending on the parties in the chain, whether you are obtaining mortgage finance, how long the searches take to be received from the Local Authority, whether there are any issues raised by your survey and how complicated the title to the property is.

The experience and qualifications of anyone carrying out the work

In the main, work is carried out by qualified solicitors or trainee solicitors (but certain work may be delegated to secretaries and paralegals).

Information of pricing for leasehold purchases is set out below. It is considered separate to freehold purchases because there are other elements involved and aspects to consider during the conveyance transaction.

Please refer to pricing information on freehold purchases above which still applies to leasehold purchases. The additional pricing information specific to leasehold purchases is set out below.

Additional Fees and Third Party Expenses

Typically, we will incur those expenses listed on freehold purchase section and the expenses below specific to leasehold purchases. These are in addition to our own fees:

Example Scenario’s for Demonstration

Scenario 1

Mrs Bouvier died without a Will, leaving around 4 bank accounts (worth around £100,000) which passed to her daughter as next of kin. The costs of valuing the Estate, applying for Probate and distributing the assets were in the region of £2,000 plus VAT.

Scenario 2

Mr Skinner was survived by his wife but no children. His Estate consisted of a property, two bank accounts, some shares and a pension (totaling around £300,000). After distributing legacies and personal belongings to his family, the remainder of the Estate passed to his widow, under the terms of the Will. Whilst at the outset the matter appeared simple, with no HMRC involvement , on account of a dispute with the deceased family over the terms of his Will, the eventual costs of this matter (including the sale of the house) were a little over £5,000 plus VAT.

Scenario 3

Miss Hoover (a single lady with no immediate family) died leaving a property, bank accounts and investments (valued at around £450,000). Her Will left various legacies to friends, bequeathed her property to a charity and the remainder of her Estate to a further 4 charities. As the deceased left no family, the firm were required to undertake some of the more practical duties (such as co-ordinating the clearance of the property) which would normally be dealt with by family. The eventual costs were a little over £10,000 plus VAT

Scenario 4

Mrs Flanders left a Will dividing her Estate between her two sons. Her Estate consisted of a bank accounts, life policy and an investment portfolio (worth around £1.3 million). The Estate required a full Inheritance Tax Account to be completed and Tax Returns to be submitted. Eventual costs totaled just under £7,000 plus VAT.

Scenario 5

Mr Burns died a widow with children from two different marriages who inherited his entire Estate under his Will. His Estate, which was valued at £800,000, consisted of a property, bank accounts and life policies, an overseas holiday home, and some shares to a nuclear power plant. An HMRC Account was required in addition to income tax returns. There was an ongoing dispute between the beneficiaries which resulted in costs of this matter (including the sale of the property) being in the region of £35,000 plus VAT.

  • Bank transfer fee (per transfer) £ 40.00
  • VAT on bank transfer (per transfer) £ 8.00

  • Statutory notice (approx. per notice) £200.00

Key stages

  • carrying out all necessary checks to ensure the validity of the will, if there is one

  • applying to the probate registry and obtaining the grant of probate
  • ensuring the accurate distribution of the estate
  • completing the tax forms for HMRC

Once this has been obtained, the whole process of administering the estate usually takes approximately one year for a simple estate. It can take longer depending on the complexity of the estate and the cooperation of the various parties involved.
