Commercial property solicitor fees

At Stephensons, our commercial property solicitor fees are competitive and reflect the legal expertise of our team. Part of our fees will also include payments to third parties such as the land registry, local authority and search fees. Where possible and appropriate we will agree a fixed fee for our legal services. However, if this is not the right approach, our hourly rates are competitive, and we will always be upfront with how much we think our services will cost you. We can also discuss offering other cost controlling options, including capping of legal fees.
