COSTS AND COURT FEES FOR DEBT RECOVERY AND ENFORCEMENT ACTION

Our fees are fixed so that you know how much you will be incurring from the outset as we do not charge an hourly rate like most legal firms.  Please be advised that for any unexpected costs that arise, these costs will be discussed with you prior to being charged and will be charged at a fixed hourly rate of £50.00 if the works are required.

The next stages 3-4 are only required if the debtor decides to defend the claim for the outstanding debt and therefore the claim becomes contested.  Many other debt recovery agencies or legal firms will, at this stage, charge an hourly rate making our LOW FIXED FEE service considerably more affordable.  All court fees and advocacy fees are payable in addition to our fees if required.

Should the District Judge order a Case Management Conference, a Pre-Trial Review or that an expert witness is required, these fees will be chargeable in addition to our fixed fees.  In a straightforward case, this is very unlikely.  Please be advised that for any unexpected costs that arise, these costs will be discussed with you prior to being charged and will be charged at a fixed hourly rate of £50.00.

Should a Hearing Fee be required this will also be payable to the court.
