The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has stated that from 6th December 2018 solicitors will have to publish their prices for a number of services, including:

A list of the services solicitors will have to publish their prices for from December 2018: Conveyancing (residential); motoring offences (summary offences); Probate (uncontested); Immigration (excluding asylum); Employment tribunals (unfair/wrongful dismissal); Debt recovery (up to £100,000); Licensing applications (business premises).

Key Information:

  • All firms regulated by SRA with a website must publish prices and description if they provide these legal services
  • If the firm doesn’t have a website, people can ask for price and service information. This can help people find out more about the legal services, compare costs, and make an informed choice
  • SRA want to know If people don’t see this information on firm website

SRA’s Digital Badge All SRA-regulated law firms regulated must feature this badge on their website: This will help people recognise that the firm is regulated by us, should met our high standards and that protections apply. SRA also want to know if a solicitor’s firm doesn’t have this badge

Complaints: All solicitors must publish information on:

  • Their complaint handling process
  • How to complain to the SRA or the Legal Ombudsman
