Our Fees

We charge all our clients a nominal fee of £10 inclusive of VAT to verify their identification to comply with our professional requirements.

We would also draw your attention to fees payable to for example a medical examiner, the Court of Protection, Office of the Public Guardian or the Land Registry. As these fees are set by third parties, they are outside of our control and subject to change from time to time. If you are on low income or receiving certain means tested benefits you may be exempt from having to pay certain Court fees or eligible to fees remission, this means you may not have to pay the full fees. Please inform us of your financial circumstances when making your enquiries so that we can provide you with the correct information regarding such fees or whether there is anything payable.
