Fees are assessed mainly by reference to the time spent on the matter, on the basis of an hourly charging rate. My current hourly rate is £180 subject to a minimum fee of £50 plus VAT. (although there is a discount available for regular clients). I charge extra for out of hours appointments, by negotiation. I release documents upon payment of my invoice. Rates are reviewed from time to time. In accordance with notarial practice guidelines (which stipulate that fees should be fair and reasonable having regard to all the circumstances of the case), my fees may also include an additional element reflecting other factors including value, importance, speed, complexity or special skills. If instructions are terminated for any reason, a charge will be made for all work carried out to date. Separate charges are made for any disbursements or expenses incurred on your behalf. You may be asked to provide monies on account. Costs include preparatory and drafting work, correspondence and attendances. My practice is not registered for value added tax, and expenses and disbursements will be charged gross.


It is difficult to estimate in some cases how much time will be required to complete a matter, bearing in mind the variety of circumstances that may arise. However, guidance as to likely costs will be given on receipt of instructions and sight of documents. Any estimates given will be based on the information available at the time and, although given in good faith, will not be binding.
