Work for Free Guarantee
Work for free guarantees aren’t new. For conveyancers in Western Australia, they are.
Residential Settlements guarantee that if your settlement doesn’t happen on time, we will not charge our Professional Service Fee. It’s that simple!
Hardly any conditions and no fine print.
Work for free – Residential Settlements will not charge our Professional Service Fee but we will charge the client for our costs and disbursements (including fees for the preparation of statutory declarations and applications), government and statutory charges, lending institution charges and charges from external providers.
- The “Work for Free” guarantee applies to settlements that do not settle on the settlement date or within the grace period.
- You must not have breached any of our terms and conditions by the time you wish to rely on the guarantee. Our terms and conditions are set out in the engagement letter that you accepted at the beginning of the settlement process.
- Exemptions to Work for Free Guarantee
- if you are entitled to collect penalty interest
- the delay in settlement is caused by:
- an error or other failure on the part of your bank
- you failing to return documents to us promptly or correctly signed
- if you deliberately delay settlement
- Environment or technical forces beyond our control e.g. widespread internet or power outage, fire, flood
There are no more conditions. No lengthy exclusions, no hidden clauses, no ‘fine print’. The guarantee is simple – we want clients to be extremely satisfied with our work and service. We will do what it takes (within reason) to keep you happy.
