    When you say "fees" do you mean purely their fee for the legal work, as opposed to VAT and disbursements on top of that?

    Hi David, everything included in the one
    Price. I’m a FTB and also I don’t have a government ISA. So fairly straight forward - apart from the leasehold.

    MSF blocked my account as I copied and pasted the quotes which it must have picked up on the spam
    Filter.
