The parties agree that Fees may be varied by us depending on the circumstances of the property and the information available. In addition, you agree that we may charge you an additional fee (which we will notify to you at the relevant time) to update a completed schedule.

    Unless otherwise specified, the Fees do not include taxes. If GST is imposed on any taxable supply by a party in connection with these Terms and Conditions and the consideration payable is not expressed to be inclusive of GST, then the party liable to pay for the taxable supply must pay an additional amount on demand calculated by multiplying the value of the GST-exclusive consideration payable (without deduction or set-off) by the then current GST rate.
