What is a CFA?

Whenever you use a solicitor you will need to sign a costs agreement. A CFA is just a special type of costs agreement that is used when you use a no-win, no-fee solicitor.

A CFA sets out the details any fees and other costs that will be charged; who will pay them; and when they will be payable.

It is important that you fully understand the nature of a CFA before you sign it. You should ask your solicitor to go through it with you to explain what it means.

In particular, you should ask about how different types of costs, fees and disbursements are covered, and whether you will ever have to pay anything. You should also ask about whether the firm charges risk-assessment fees or success fees.
