- Land registry fees
- Medical, surveyor, forensic accountant or other expert report fees
- Court fees (based on various financial criteria it may be possible for a remission of Court fees to be obtained on your behalf reducing or potentially completely remitting the fee)
- Medical or other records fees
Also separate from the solicitor’s fees are also any Counsel’s fees incurred for drafting of opinion, preparation of documents or other work undertaken by a barrister.
