Terms and Conditions (continued)
The CMS website is designed to enable clients to access conveyancing and other related services. All legal work is referred to the CMS panel of solicitors and licensed conveyancers (CMS undertake no legal work themselves). By using this website to obtain quotations and request legal services you are accepting the terms and conditions applying to the CMS website. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions you should not use the CMS website for legal or any other related services.
By accepting the estimate for conveyancing fees you authorise CMS to refer your transaction to an appointed panel solicitor / licensed conveyancer to undertake the work. You have been notified that you are free to instruct another solicitor of your choice and that there is no obligation for you to instruct the appointed solicitor. You confirm that you have not already appointed a solicitor to deal with the transaction nor do you wish to do so.
The legal fees given on this website apply only to standard conveyancing transactions and do not apply to such legal work over and above the usual conveyancing services i.e. dealing with a defective title or lease etc. The additional cost of any such items will be notified to the client directly by the panel lawyer. If your transaction is cancelled for any reason you will still be responsible for any disbursements (such as searches) which have been paid out on your behalf by the panel lawyer.
When you agree to proceed CMS will request a deposit which can be taken by credit or debit card. This will be deducted from the balance of monies owing by you upon legal completion of your transaction as notified by the panel solicitor. Should the transaction not proceed to completion the deposit will be automatically transferred to any subsequent transaction. Deposits are not transferable to transactions on behalf of third parties i.e. friends or relatives etc.
Unless you notify CMS or the appointed panel solicitor to the contrary you give permission for the panel lawyer to communicate all relevant information concerning your transaction to Conveyancing Marketing Services Ltd who may include this is progress reports to relevant third parties. By accepting the CMS quote and paying the initial deposit you are authorising CMS to instruct the solicitor on your behalf.
