Retrieval of Files
All our files have been placed in secure storage. If you want your file or any documents
or information from your file it can be retrieved from storage. If you require a
file please follow the link below to fill out a file request and then sent the request
to us by post.
To retrieve a file will incur costs. To cover the administrative costs incurred by
us involved in a file retrieval we require a cheque in the sum of £60 to be sent
to us by post to our address shown above. The cheque should be made payable to Hall
& Co.. This is to cover our administrative costs . This cost is strictly on the basis
that the papers you request will fit into a large letter which is classed by the
post office as being 353x250mm max thickness 25mm. Many conveyancing files are larger
than this. If the file/documents cannot be sent by second class large letter we will determine
the postage payable and will require payment prior to posting the parcel. Likewise
if you require first class, recorded or special delivery let us know and we will
identify the costs involved.
Special Requirements concerning conveyancing files
If you require a file in relation to a purchase or a transfer where a lender was
involved the file cannot be released to you without the lenders permission. In these
cases in addition to your completed request we will also require the lenders consent
on their letterhead, or proof the lender no longer has any interest on the basis
the mortgage has been repaid. If you cannot provide this we can only supply a photocopy
of the file. If the file is to be copied we will charge £0.25 per page copied subject
to a minimum payment of £10.00. we will advise you of the cost of photocopying if
you require copies of documents and these costs will need to be paid before the
file is copied.
We regret we no longer have facilities to allow the personal collection of files
Hall & Co LLP are no longer regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority
