sorry, was having internet problems. Yes, I have had a full print out of what they have charged, but the hours taken seem excessive. I am used to dealing with law firms since I have been involved in many property deals, but £10k for a meeting which took one hour ( I did the majority of the talking) , about 4 hrs of travelling and about 1hr of prep seems excessive.
Since they charge such exorbitant fees, and they say that they have already clocked up another £2k in court prep work this week, I am concerned that I will have an additional £10k+ in fees to pay when it gets to court? They are using the threat of additional costs as a incentive to try and get me to pay the £18k now rather than the £12k now - neither of which was realistic. They are also saying that they will win the case and then instruct bailiffs - on top of what we have been through already, it is starting to make me ill. Can I complain to the Law Society about their overcharging and behaviour?
thank you - what does SRA stand for?
