At the initial stages we provide you with an estimate of costs based on the information we have at that particular stage. Any estimate of costs we provide is only a guide to assist you in budgeting and should not be regarded as a firm quotation or fixed or capped fee. Estimates can increase as a result of a number of factors e.g due to the complexity of the issue, the speed at which action was to be taken, the scope of the work changes, the expertise or specialist knowledge which the case requires, and an excessive amount of emails/telephone calls /correspondence to deal with. Please note regular emails or calls which require attention will increase your costs significantly. We therefore encourage clients to only make calls or send emails if strictly necessary.
We will inform you as soon as possible once we become aware of any additional fees which you may need to pay.
We may at any time request payment on account of costs. If you do not make payment on account within the time frame stipulated then we reserve the right to stop work on your matter or refuse to complete your transaction until all payments and disbursements are received.
