Explanatory Note

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

This Act of Sederunt amends the Table of Fees in Chapter 42 of the Rules of the Court of Session 1994 by increasing the fees payable to solicitors (and recoverable from opponents) by about 3%. The fee for work done before action commences has been increased by about 6%. The last increase was in the Act of Sederunt (Rules of the Court of Session Amendment No.8) (Fees of Solicitors) 2000 (S.S.I. 2000/450).

It also introduces block fees in defended actions for arranging a commission to recover documents under a specification of documents and for attending consultation with counsel to consider tender, extra judicial settlement or with a view to settlement (whether or not settlement is agreed).

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