Mayfair Consultancy do not normally charge you a fee for arrangement of an insurance product as we will receive a commission from the product provider. If, however you cease to pay premiums and the policy subsequently cancels the provider will clawback a proportion of the commission that has been paid to us. As this commission covers the cost of our service to you, we will charge you a fee equal to the amount of commission that we must refund to the provider.
Once a policy is put into force we will write to you to inform you of the commission we will receive. This will be the maximum amount we will charge you, together with the maximum period of clawback. This will usually be for a period of 48 months.
In the absence of prior written agreement to the contrary, payment of our charges is required on receipt of our invoice. Failure to make payment within 28 days of the due date may result in the matter being referred to a debt collection agent whose charges will be added to and payable with the invoice debt.
