New Court of Protection Practice Direction - effective 1 April 2017

Posted by Michelle Barron on 31st March, 2017 in Opinion and categorised in .

A new Practice Direction is effective from 1 April 2017 which includes details of the fixed fees applicable to Court of Protection costs.

Payments on account may now be taken up to 75% of the estimated annual management charge, with interim quarterly bills not to exceed 25%. Please remember to inform your draftsman about payments on account taken as these should be taken into account when the final Bill is drafted.

We would also remind you of the need to send OPG 105 when submitting your Bill of Costs for provisional assessment.
