How is my final fee for legal services determined?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Since each transaction is unique, it is best to discuss any questions you may have regarding fees with your attorney. Since most real estate transactions have the same basic elements in common, we are typically in a position to charge a fixed fee for those services, which can be determined at the outset. However, circumstances may arise which require special attention not contemplated in our basic fee. Under such circumstances, it may be necessary for us to charge a supplemental fee for the additional legal services which are required. Any such fee would be based upon the additional amount of time and effort expended on your behalf. Buyers should take note that the fees charged to you by our firm are solely for our representation of your interests. If you are obtaining a bank loan, an additional attorney’s fee will be charged by your lender to pay for an attorney to represent their interests. Although you are required by your lender to pay these fees, in order for the bank to agree to loan you their money, the bank attorneys do not represent you. Their sole obligation and responsibility is to the bank.
