When I get calls for lawns that havent been cut in a while, I will usually bump up the price a bit and explain to the customer that it wil take extra time. They usually dont have a problem.
On other odd properties, I wil tell the customer a slightly higher price and also explain the price MIGHT change BUT I CAN GURANTEE IT WONT RISE BY MORE THAN $10/ per cut. I have only used that policy about 4 or 5 times and actually, the property was intimidating because it took a lot LESS time than I was planning.
