6. The lump-sum method consists in determining the advocate’s or notary’s fees according to a lump sum, which is computed from an estimate of the number of hours required to perform the contract, on the basis of the hourly rates provided for in Schedule II.
The lump sum is agreed upon between the parties to the contract or set by the body. In the latter case, in the case of a public body, the lump sum must be set before the public body solicits the services of an advocate or notary pursuant to section 23 of the Regulation respecting certain service contracts of public bodies (chapter C-65.1, r. 4).
The lump sum may include all or part of the expenses provided for in Chapter III which would be otherwise reimbursed in addition to the fees.
