    • Thanks DX, I'm happy that there are no valid reasons for them not to send us documents via royal mail - they were after all perfectly capable of sending these two letters.   The 12+2 days end on 7 December so I will ensure the DD's are cancelled for these and the Hoist one that is also being paid monthly on that very date. 
    • Sorry to hear the news Dave.   As for sums on top of the £100, maybe the judge ruled against the £60 Unicorn Food Tax but allowed £25 claimform fee + £25 legal costs.  Just a guess.

A pensioner from Greater Manchester claims he is being evicted after complaining about the solicitor who handled his father's will.

Paul Cowdrey from Rochdale said his home, part of his late father's inheritance, is being sold to pay a £130,000 legal debt owed to a solicitor.

He said he complained to the Law Society about the amount of hours he was being billed for by solicitor Michael Sandler.

Mr Cowdrey said he was then billed by him for investigating the complaint.

Two High Court judges have ruled Mr Sandler was right but the Solicitors Regulatory Authority described his behaviour as "morally reprehensible".

Reading between the lines (unreported) it would appear that this is a family dispute as the other siblings were quite happy with the outcome.I suppose it comes down to what the complaint was about?

We could do with some help from you.

There must be more to this. It sounds like the court assessed the legal costs, so there would have been an examination of whether they are reasonable. 127k is a huge amount and would presumably only be upheld for quite a big case ... not for a complaint.

 

The only way I can make sense of this is to think that Cowdrey sued the solicitors for professional negligence.

Mr Cowdrey's MP asked the Prime Minister to look into it yesterday during PM's questions. Should be clip on the web.

Cameron said the government can't intervene, but he is going to look into it.

 

I think the MP should stay out of it.

 

These are costs awarded by the Court so politicians should not try and interfere.
