Registering the notice of claim: £150 + vat plus Land Registry fee £40.
Landlords response: Our fee for receipting and reporting to you on the counter-notice are £150 + VAT.
Negotiations to respond to the landlord’s counter-notice: £250+ VAT.
First-tier (property) tribunal – this is sometimes required but usually avoided – our fee for making the tribunal application is £525 +VAT. Our fees for preparing the documents necessary to present your case at the tribunal are £525 + VAT (this does not include the cost of presenting your case which will involve the instruction of your valuer or an expert barrister).
