Charging for deeds

Postby theycantdothat » Tue May 31, 2016 2:10 pm

We know that under the Legal Services Act 2007:

(a) it is illegal for an unauthorised person to charge for preparing a deed;

(b) an unauthorised person may prepare a deed for another person without making a charge;

(c) if you provide a professional service for another person for which you make a charge you cannot as part for the service prepare a deed even if you assert you prepare it free.

What is the position if you prepare a deed to which you are a party, say a landlord preparing a deed of covenant? Making any sort of charge would seem to be ruled out. Anyone disagree?

As in, no, I do not disagree.
