Has anybody ever been charged by their solicitor for sending e-mails to them?

Hi Dinky when i bought and sold my property i used the same solicitor and most of his correspondence was via email or telephone and i did not incur any charges for this the price he quoted to buy and sell included all this.

Hope this helps why do you ask are you having problems?

My Solicitor in the UK used to charge me for emails and phone calls (use of their time etc), think that it was 15 or so.

Never been charged for emails. We were told the cost for conveyancing at the outset and never paid anything extra for emails.

Most Solicitors, if not on a flat fee in the UK charge an hourly rate for their time now. They divide it into units and for most a unit is 6 minutes. if they send an email, even if it takes a minute some will charge a unit, that's how they charge more hours than in the day!

Dinky you do not state whether the solicitor is in the UK or in the TRNC as this could make a difference. In the Uk i was charged by a solicitor for phone calls and emails but not in the TRNC

The solicitor was in TRNC - and I was quite surprised to be charged!
