The House of Lords yesterday evening approved the legislation* for new court fees, which includes a 10% increase in issuing a High Court writ, from £60 to £66. This will be implemented on Monday, the 25th July 2016 and relates to writs of control, delivery and possession.
Please be assured that we will honour the £60 fee on all existing instructions and the increased fee will only apply to new instructions received from Monday 25th July.
If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact me or Malcolm Davies on 0191 338 5555 or email email@example.com .
