How can I check my solicitor hasn’t overcharged me?

Question

I’m worried that I am being overcharged by my solicitor for our moving fees, how can I check that the costs are accurate, and if not, how can I get the money back?

Answer

Hi Sally. You should have received a client care letter at the start of the conveyancing process which clearly outlines all the disbursements and expenses. Sometimes these need to change if circumstances change such as leasehold problems not foreseen.

If you are really worried, speak to your solicitor for reassurance but the last resort is to contact the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Here’s the link: SRA.

So far we have found the service very good. So much so that we have used them for both transactions. Emails are replied to very quickly and the online service is a lot quicker than the main stream system. No problems so far!
