Legal Fee to Attorney. Client agrees to pay Attorney a fee of $ 1,500.00 (“the fee”) for the services specifically enumerated in paragraph 1 hereof, entitled “Services To Be Performed By Attorney”. The above legal fee is due and payable at the time of closing, no exceptions. Client is aware and acknowledges that the foregoing fee is NOT a contingency fee. Meaning, that Client’s requirement to pay for legal services is NOT contingent on the Client actually closing. There are circumstances beyond the Attorney’s control, i.e. title or appraisal issues, that may prevent Client from closing. In the event that the transaction is terminated by either the Client or Purchaser prior to closing, Client agrees to compensate the Attorney for any services performed in connection with the subject transaction, pro-rata. If the transaction is terminated after the execution of the contracts, client will be responsible to pay Attorney one-third of the contracted fee. If terminated after the execution of contracts and review of the title report, Client will be responsible to pay Attorney one-half of the contracted fee. If terminated after the Client’s file has been cleared for closing but prior to closing, Client will be responsible to pay Attorney the equivalent of three-quarters of the contracted fee. If terminated at the closing, Client is responsible for the entire fee regardless of the fact that the Client did not actually close. If Attorney is required to appear at multiple closings through no fault of the Attorney, Client agrees to pay Attorney an additional $250.00 for each additional closing that the Attorney actually appears for.
