Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)

This Act of Sederunt amends the Table of Fees in Schedule 1 (general regulations) to the Act of Sederunt (Fees of Solicitors in the Sheriff Court) (Amendment and Further Provisions) 1993 by increasing the fees payable to solicitors by about 3%.The last increase was in the Act of Sederunt (Fees of Solicitors in the Sheriff Court) (Amendment) 1999 (S.S.I. 1999/149) but was based on statistical information gathered in 1995.

It also revokes Part I of Chapter II of Schedule 1 (block fees in defended actions commenced on or before 31st December 1993).Such actions are now rare.Fees for work done, or outlays incurred, in such actions after the Act of Sederunt comes into force will still be chargeable, but on the basis of a detailed account, rather than a block fee.

The Act of Sederunt does not apply as respects work done, or outlays incurred, before it comes into force.
