An undisputed debt claim is where the claim relates to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed and enforcement action is not needed. Below we have set out the issues that should be considered in respect of legal fees and disbursements for these claims.
Our Legal Fees cover all of the work required to handle your case from instruction to conclusion.
Where a claim relates to an undisputed invoice for up to £100,000, any quote will be inclusive of all work anticipated from commencement of the claim until conclusion.
- Our average, our standard legal fee for assisting you in recovering unpaid and undisputed invoices range between, £500 – £1000 (excl VAT). Any quote will depend on the status of the claim and the steps that are expected in order to recover the monies due.
- Where a dispute arises, we will discuss with you what further work may be required and provide an updated quote to reflect any additional cost. This could be based on hourly rates or a fixed fee.
- Our hourly rates range from £125 – £495 (excl VAT) and will depend on the experience of the case handler.
- VAT will be payable on our fees and most disbursements and we will clearly confirm which disbursements carry VAT either in our initial quote or as and when a disbursement is required.
If at any stage our fees change, we will notify you and discuss the reason for any changes. This will typically occur if your instructions change or your case involves an unforeseen complexity.
Disbursements are costs that are required for the progression of the case and are payable to third parties. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. For undisputed debt claims there does not tend to be many disbursements, other than a court issue fee where legal proceedings are commenced. If a payment to a third party is required, we will notify you as to the reason and amount in advance.
