Question: solicitor costs

    A solicitor quoted 100 EUR for a service. He wrote this on the back of his business card.

    Do they not to send a section 68 or section 150 letter to confirm costs?

    And how would they quote if costs increase at a later stage, e.g. something to be done with the documents I asked about.

    It's "strange" that he uses a business card to quote costs, or?

    Its strange you would get any sort of service from a solicitor for €100. Are you sure there wasnt a zero missing.

    Are you sure it was a solicitor? No solicitor would do anything for €100!

    Got a will done for less. But lets face it that's good business even if one in ten people go back to the same solicitor for other work.

    Wake me up when it's all over.

    Yes, it was a solicitor.

    They are not obliged to send a s.168 letter when quoting or estimating — only when engaged. So if you accept the quote and instruct the solicitor, you should get a s.168 letter.
