Our Fees

Complaints

Our aim is to provide you with the best service possible, however, if you are unhappy or concerned about the service provided to you then please inform us immediately so we are able to resolve any concerns or issues you may have.

It is probably helpful to contact the person in charge of your case to discuss any problems and hopefully, we can resolve the issue at this stage. However, if you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure which is in your fee agreement, once you sign up with us. Any complaints made by you will not affect how we handle your case.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help if you are concerned about our behaviour. This includes dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic.

Visit their website to see how you can raise your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) (LINK)

If you require further assistance, please contact the Professional Ethics Helpline. (LINK)

If we are unable to resolve your complaint The Legal Ombudsman can help you. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.

The Legal Ombudsman will check whether you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first before they accept a complaint for investigation. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint; and
  • No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
  • No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.

If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.

Immigration

The below rates and fee estimates are exclusive of VAT. Professional fees and disbursements will be subject to VAT at 20% where this is applicable.

The estimates provided here give a range of likely fees for standard applications. Once we have discussed your case with you, we will agree a fixed fee.

Your fixed fee would be agreed upon prior to us formalising our engagement with you.

The fixed fee will depend on the circumstances in your case. Such as:

  • The amount of supporting evidence that we need to consider
  • Which language(s) you speak
  • Whether you are applying with other dependants

If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting and clearly meet the applicable Immigration Rules, the cost is likely to be at the lower end of the range.

The fees below are for guidance purposes only.
