Costs in the Court of Protection
20th January 2020 - Mandatory E - Filing of Bills in the SCCO.
Please visit our Blog here for full details and official SCCO Guidance.
We are instructed by Deputies to recover fair remuneration in this sensitive and specialist area.
We can draft your bills and support you in all Court of Protection matters to include complex matters which are regularly dealt with. These include bills relating to applications for Deputyship, statutory wills, annual general Deputyship costs and deprivation of liberty claims. Our market-leading 7-day turnaround, coupled with competitive pricing gives us a competitive edge. Our payment structure ensures that the Deputy suffers no short-fall in relation to our fees.
All bills are returned ready for lodgement with the Senior Courts Costs Office (“SCCO”) and include all relevant certificates and the form N258B (Request for Detailed Assessment). Alternatively, we are often instructed to assist with the whole process, to include necessary liaison with the SCCO and securing the Final Costs Certificate. In addition, we can assist with the preparation of the OPG 105.
We are able to offer a variety of competitive fee structures to suit your individual requirements, whether on a case by case basis or on a service level agreement. We would be pleased to discuss this with you at the outset. Please contact Alison Bradbury to discuss your requirements: or 01772 435550

"I regularly use SPH costing for my Court of Protection files. I receive a most professional and efficient service from them. They assist me with not only preparing the bill of costs, but are also invaluable with their aftercare service, assisting me with the recalculation of bills and preparation of summaries where required. All the staff are most helpful and a pleasure to speak to. I would highly recommend their services."
