No sale, no fee FAQ's

Is 'no sale, no fee' the same as 'no move, no fee'?

Yes. no sale, no fee and no move, no fee are exactly the same thing. No sale no fee is also sometimes described as 'no completion, no fee'.

Why might a sale fall through?

On average, 28% of property transactions fall through after acceptance of an offer. (source: Which? Survey 2016)

There are numerous reasons why a sale or purchase, even after the solicitor has started the conveyancing process, might not progress to completion.

Any of the following (occurring to anyone in the property chain) could cause a sale or purchase to fall through:

  • A mortgage offer expires
  • Adverse survey results
  • A buyer or seller has a change of circumstance e.g. losing a job
  • A buyer or seller simply changes their mind
  • A buyer finds another property to buy

All of the above reasons are covered by our no sale no fee guarantee.

Am I still covered if I pull out of the sale or purchase?

Yes. Quittance's no sale no fee guarantee covers you for any reason at all including you deciding not to go ahead with the move.

Do you charge more for conveyancing that includes no sale no fee?

No. Your solicitor will work exclusively on a no move no fee basis. The legal fees are not increased to cover the no sale no fee guarantee.

Is there a catch?

No. Our no move no fee guarantee is applicable to all sale and purchase transactions that do not ultimately complete.
