CAN I CHALLENGE MY SOLICITOR'S BILL CHARGES?

Answer: Yes, of course you can. You can apply for a 'Detailed Assessment' of your Bill. You apply on what is referred to as a Part 8 Claim Form to which you attach the solicitor's Bill. The solicitor can either agree to or refuse to the Detailed Assessment and in the case of a refusal, there will therefore be a hearing. If a Detailed Assessment is not granted, you can seek permission to appeal. You initially have a period of three months to challenge a bill, though in exceptional circumstances, this time limit can be extended.
