Flat Fee Services for Residential Real Estate Transactions Only

Important terms regarding flat fee services

  • The above described services are for one property, one seller/landlord, and one buyer/tenant. For example, if the seller of 1234 Main St. contracts for Contract Review, it is for a contract involving one buyer, such as Buyer A. If Buyer A does not complete the transaction and seller contracts with Buyer B, reviewing the contract from Buyer B would not be covered under the Contract Review from Buyer A's contract.
  • The flat fee will be due before the commencement of the service. Once the Attorney has commenced work for the client, the flat fee shall be deemed to be earned in its entirety.
  • Any services provided outside of the explicit descriptions above, such as review of condominium declarations & bylaws or homeowner association documents, will be billed at the hourly rate of $300 per hour.
  • No attorney - client relationship shall be deemed to have formed until this document is signed by both the client and the attorney and the required fee has been paid.
  • The services provided by the Attorney are strictly limited as defined herein.

The flat fees quoted above are subject to change without notice, however, if this page is printed directly from this site, and has the corresponding site information on the bottom, the flat fees will be honored for 30 days after printing.
