Surely the age old principles of establishing a reasonable fee should still prevail, the experience/skill of the practitioner, the speed with which the task is to be performed and the importance of the transaction to the client, especially the importance of the transactions to the client and the constitutional imperative of equality; why then does the recommended fee set 4.4% for the property owner of property at less than R50 000 and 0.34% of the property at R30 000 000.00 surely in equity the 4.4% should apply in both instances? Or is this another example of legal fees being set by persons who have no conception of the work and stress involved and no conception of mathematics
