SRA - Transparency in price and service


(saraharundel) #1

Has anyone looked at the SRA example pricing and transparency templates for probate work? The templates are apparently a ‘quote’ for work and we need to explain ‘anything that could affect the price quoted’. The templates also use words like ‘intangible assets’ yet the guidance states that we are should explain technical terms in plain English. I could go on…

Are STEP making any representations to the SRA about this?

Of all the Private Client areas I work in probate is the least predictable in terms of issues arising that cause extra cost and delays, but that is the one I’m supposed to quote for?
