Your transcript will be sent to you by, or before, close of business on the final working day of the agreed turnaround.

A few things to note:

  • In the absence of any indication of times, we shall estimate a full day of proceedings. The final cost of the transcript will not be known until the transcript is produced. If the times are greater than those indicated, you also agree to be responsible for those costs once you pay the deposit or, for Account Customers, agree to proceed, and d) we do not provide specific estimates or take instructions over the telephone. Whilst we are happy to talk to you about your request, any instruction must be confirmed by you in writing (including email). Estimates will also be sent to you in writing. 
  • Turnaround time commences from when we receive both the deposit and suitable audio. If paying by cheque, turnaround may not commence until the cheque has cleared through our bank. The Court is required to approve some transcripts (and all Judgments) before they can be released to you. The time taken for the approvals process is beyond our control, but we will work with you to expedite this process as much as possible.
  • Once payment and the appropriate audio (and any necessary court permissions) are received, our specialist team will start the transcribing process immediately. If there are any issues, one of our team members will contact you for a resolution. Please note that any issues relating to locating the correct audio, or poor audio quality, may result in the turnaround time being extended.
  • Final charges will be invoiced to you shortly after delivery of the transcript(s). For non-Account Customers, the final invoice will show any outstanding payment required from you, any refund due to you, or a zero balance. If a refund is due to you, this will be made to the original payment method. If your original payment was by BACS or Cheque, please provide us with your BACS details, so that we may process the refund. Outstanding balances are due within seven (7) days of invoice.
