It is difficult to estimate in some cases how much time will be required to complete a matter, bearing in mind the variety of circumstances that may arise. However, guidance as to likely costs will be given on receipt of instructions and sight of documents. Any estimates given will be based on the information available at the time and, although given in good faith, will not be binding. Please note that our minimum charge is £75.
Our clients can pay via BACS, cash, cheque or invoice (by arrangement).
My governing body is the Law Society of Scotland. The Law Society of Scotland is responsible for the admission and registration of Notaries.
All complaints start at the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission (SLCC). If the complaint is about conduct, it will be referred to us. If the complaint is about service, it is dealt with by the SLCC.
Our process is designed to ensure all complaints are investigated thoroughly and in an open and transparent manner.
When we receive a complaint from the SLCC, it is allocated to a Reporter to the Professional Conduct Sub Committees (PCSC). It may be necessary at this early stage for the reporter to request additional information from any of the parties involved. The solicitor is informed of the issues under investigation and is given the opportunity and time to respond.
The reporter carries out the investigation by gathering all the evidence and information from the complainer, solicitor and any other relevant sources.
At the end of the investigation, a written report is prepared. The report includes recommendations based on the evidence found during the investigation.
Both parties have an opportunity to comment at this stage.
Any comments and a supplementary report are submitted with the main report to one of our Professional Conduct Sub Committees.
