DATA PROTECTION ACT

1998 We are registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and authorised to collect and store personal data. In instructing us you should be aware that personal data relating to you and your matter is being collected and held electronically and in paper records and files. The only use that will be made of that personal data is in fulfilling our professional retainer for you and for marketing purposes (unless you indicate to the contrary that you do not wish to receive any marketing information or literature from us.) We take reasonable measures to secure access, storage and transmission of any data collected and stored by us.

STORAGE OF PAPERS AND DEEDS

After completing the sale, we are entitled to keep all your papers and documents while money is owing to us. We will keep our file of papers (except for any of your papers which you ask to be returned to you) for no more than 12 years and on the understanding that we have your authority to destroy the file 12 years after sending you my final bill. We will not destroy documents you ask us to deposit in safe custody. We do not normally charge for retrieving stored papers or deeds in response to continuing instructions to act for you. However, we reserve the right to make a charge based on the time we spend reading papers, writing letters or other work necessary to comply with the instructions.

MONEY LAUNDERING

In common with most other firms of Solicitors, and many other types of business besides, we are obliged by the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and the Money Laundering Regulations 2007, to disclose to the authorities any activity which we suspect may involve money laundering, and indeed, we are subject to very severe penalties should we fail to do so. By confirming your instructions you authorise us to make any such disclosure as we, in the reasonable exercise of our discretion think fit, and without reference to you or any other person (and whether before or after any such disclosure is made) and without incurring any liability for any loss or damage occasioned by such disclosure and whether suffered by you or some other person or party. 

VAT

We are registered for VAT and therefore all fees and appropriate expenses will have VAT added at the current rate for the time being in force. VAT Number 923922619
