We are always happy to let you have a “no obligation” quote based on your specific requirements. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will come back to you. Alternatively, please call us on 01253 362500 and ask to speak to Tim Fielding to discuss your requirements.
We do not offer a fixed fee service for debt recovery. Our charges are on a time recorded basis.
We charge £250 plus VAT per hour and disbursements including land registry search fees (£3.00 each) for the initial pre-action correspondence.
If proceedings are required, then we will continue to charge £250 plus vat per hour and court fees to prepare and issue a money claim and to enter a default judgment.
Average costs will vary as the court fee depends upon the value of claim being brought. Subject to that qualification on average you can expect to pay between £750 and £1500 to secure a default judgment. The court fee paid and fixed cost of around £100 will be added to the amount to be paid.
If the case is defended, we will continue to charge costs on a time recorded basis at an hourly charge-out rate of £250 per hour and disbursements which may include counsel’s fees.
Average costs here vary dramatically because much depends upon the value of the claim, the nature of the dispute and where your case is allocated ie to small claims, the fast track or the multi-track.
For illustrative purposes:
The average small claims trial might cost £3,000, fast track trial £7,000 to £10,000 and a multi-track trial £15,000 to £20,000.
All charges above are exclusive of Court Fees and VAT.
