In the process of repairing a shared driveway, project management and legal costs will highly likely be incurred due to securing each residents apportionment for the repair (trusts etc.). Will project management and legal costs be included in settlement sums?

Lumley’s settlements are based on our approved rates or contractor quotes, in proportion to the ownership of such property as per the certificate of title. Additional project management or legal costs are not included unless evidence that such costs will be incurred is provided.
