Cost Varies

  • We only act for Deputies for Patients / Children appointed by the Court of Protection.
  • All costs and disbursements are subject to assessment by the Senior Court Costs Office who will also assess the costs payable.
  • The best information that we can provide is as follows:
  • Our fees will vary and will be dependent upon the amount of work involved. However, from our experience the likely costs will be in the region of £5,000 to £10,000.
  • Our fees will attract VAT at the prevailing rate (currently at 20%).
  • In addition to our fees, there are likely to be a number of disbursements incurred in relation to the conveyance, which can include the following:
  • Search fees estimated to be in the region of £500, which will attract VAT at the prevailing rate.
  • Reports from electricians, gas engineers, plumbers or drainage engineers and it is estimated that each of these reports would likely cost in the region of £250 - £300 plus VAT at the prevailing rate.
  • A surveyors fee is likely to cost in the region of £1,000 plus VAT at the prevailing rate.
  • Please note that the above are only estimates as to the likely disbursements to be incurred in relation to any conveyance involving the purchase of a property on behalf of a Deputy for Patients / Children and the actual figures could therefore be lower or higher than those quoted above.


Disbursements are costs related to third party services which we pay on your behalf.

Taking Instructions

At this stage your solicitor will establish contact with everyone involved. We collect the relevant documents and information from everyone involved to get the process started and ID for the client is obtained.



This is where your solicitor does their due diligence. We perform searches on the property and raise the usual enquiries as well as reviewing the deeds and related paperwork to ensure good title to the property. If we catch anything out of the ordinary, we’ll discuss it with you and work out how to move forward. When you’re selling a property with us we respond to the new buyers queries and they perform the searches.

On checking the title we write up a contract to confirm the terms of the property transfer. Once the contract is approved it can be signed along with the transfer. We’ll then invite you to sign it and transfer us your deposit if you’re making a purchase.


Exchanging Contracts

At the point where contracts are exchanged the transfer of property becomes binding. We will transfer your deposit if you’re making a purchase and agree a ‘completion date’ which is when we will transfer ownership.



This is the day that the transfer is completed. Solicitors will confirm the transfer of funds due, and the keys are released from your estate agents – congratulations on your new home!


Post Completion

Following completion your solicitor will set about arranging the payment of any tax due, and the registration of the transfer of property with the Land Registry.



Mr L received £2,100,000 after suffering cerebal palsy as a result of medical negligence. The first liability expert had advised there was no breach of duty of care, so the case was passed on to The Roland Partnership's eminent causation expert. The defendants vigorously denied liability and The Roland Partnership's expert said it was one of the most difficult cases he had dealt with. The claim was settled shortly before trial.
