Explanatory Note

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

This Act of Sederunt makes amendments to the Table of Fees in Schedule 1 to the Act of Sederunt (Fees of Solicitors in the Sheriff Court) (Amendment and Further Provisions) 1993 (S.I. 1993/3080) (“the Table of Fees”).

Paragraph 2(2) increases the fees recoverable under the Table of Fees by about 4%.

Paragraph 2(3) amends Part II of Chapter II (defended actions commenced on or after 1st January 1994) to provide for recovery of the restricted adjustment fee where an action settles prior to the end of the adjustment period and to clarify that the extra-judicial settlement fee does not include the drawing, intimating and lodging of a written motion.

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