We understand that costs are a very important issue for our clients. Unfortunately, as every case is different, an exact quote or even a general estimation of how much you can expect to pay can be very difficult.
In famiily cases we offer an initial 45 minute advice meeting at our offices for a fixed fee of £60 including VAT. During this consultation we take pride in our ability to provide a more detailed estimate as to the total costs of any case you may face, including assessment of your eligibility for Legal Aid.
We also offer a fixed fee divorce or civil partnership dissolution package for £500 (exclusive of VAT and Court fees or other disbursements. Terms and conditions apply). Alternatively we offer a mediation package for £300 (exclusive of VAT and the mediation service costs) to advise and assist you during the mediation process.
Currently there are Court fees payable for issuing a Divorce of £500. If you are on certain benefits or your income is below a certain level, you may not have to pay the fee. This is assessed by the Court at the time of issuing the papers.
In relation to buying or selling of property (private or commercial), we provide a detailed breakdown of our fees at the beginning of the transaction. We treat the sale or purchase of a leasehold property in the same way we treat that of a freehold. We will charge you nothing extra. For a quote, click here.
We offer a fixed fee first appointment for £60 for all other property transactions to enable you to discuss your requirements with us. This will last at least half an hour and can be conducted at our office or on the telephone. During this consultation we should be able to provide you with a more detailed estimate of the costs.
Wills and Probate
For Wills, we offer a fixed price of £144 for a single Will or £240 for Mirror Wills. A discount on Wills is available for existing or previous clients.
In Probate cases, it is difficult to estimate exactly what the costs may be and we therefore offer a fixed fee first appointment for £60 to discuss your case, to enable us to provide you with a better estimate of costs.
For a Lasting Power of Attorney, we offer an initial consultation to discuss your needs for a fixed fee of £60 (including vat). Our costs for the preparation of full lasting power of attorney for either finance or welfare are £300 plus vat with a joint application fee of £500 plus vat; the current court application fees are £130 per application.
