Hi all please advice,
In early July2010 I've signed the S&P selling my house & had make a full payment for the legal fee as required by the lawyer.
Recently got a bill again of RM$840 from my lawyer after the long uncompleted process, reason that there is a new requirement form from Wilayah land office that they need to submit & are charging me for the process.
Below is the break down of the bill

Professional charges :$440
Postage, phone, Fax & photocopy :$50
Stamp duty : $40
Official search :$100
Affirmation Statutory Charge :$80
Transport & other incidental Charge :$100
Courier & Postage : $50

All of the charges were similar to my 1st payment bill.
Should I need to pay since the full payment of the legal fee had been already charge & paid?
Is this ethical to add more of the charges in the midst of the process?
Thank you.

You have to ask them what do they mean by resubmit? It doesn't make sense. Ask them to explain the entire process and why there is additional charges then post their explanation here.

Request for copies of receipts for work done and documents provided and returned will be helpful to see what type of arrangement of initial work have been followed.

Guess the ideal plan may not have gone so ideally, after all, humans are humans.

Thanks fellas for your input, we've managed to resolved the problems with long battle with the lawyer & give in at half the said fee.
Anyway the transaction had been drag more than 8mths & coming to a final draw down, thus did not want to make the matter worse.
Thanks again.

Also, please send my thanks for the electricity that we can enjoy. Without electricity, there will be no point of having internet connection.

Thank you very, very, very much.
