Administration fees

Administration charges can be applied for the following reasons:

  1. If an application is deemed invalid and discarded
  2. If a satisfactory response to an invalid letter is not received within 28 days from the date on the invalid letter.
  3. If there's a request to transfer a statutory application fee from a previously closed invalid application to a new one
  4. If an invalid application is withdrawn after notification that it is invalid (this charge will be deducted from any refund).

The charge is as follows:

  • £200 for major applications

  • £60 for all other applications
