Terms and Conditions of Engagement

The following terms and conditions are issued with all our Client Care Letters (contract of services), to be signed by de Prey Consulting and the client:

  • I have agreed to the above services, for which you have agreed to pay the above fee. If the fee is to increase due to additional unanticipated work I will notify you of such, and gain your agreement to proceed, prior to undertaking the additional work.
  • Please be aware that there is an inherent risk in any visa application process. Whilst I will guide you in line with the Immigration Rules and according to the information you share with me, the final decision to issue or refuse your visa rests with UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI). The decision UKVI make and the processing time taken by UKVI are not within my control. Should your application with UKVI be refused solely due to negligence on my part in the correct application of the Immigration Rules, your fee for my services will be refunded in full by de Prey Consulting. Your application fee paid to UKVI, however, will not be refunded by de Prey Consulting: please note that UKVI does not refund application fees for refusal decisions nor where the application is withdrawn.
  • I strongly recommend that you do not purchase flights to the UK (where applicable) before you have your visa and passport in hand.
  • (For Points Based System applications made outside the UK): Should your application with UK Visas and Immigration be refused, and you wish to render my services in preparation of a request for Administrative Review, an additional fee will be charged and a fresh Client Care Letter be issued.
  • The Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) may examine this file at any time.
  • Your information will be protected under the Data Protection Act (DPA); I am the data controller for the purposes of the DPA, registered with the Information Commissioner, number Z1959801. Your information will not be shared with anyone outside de Prey Consulting except as required by UK law and the OISC.
  • The Agreement shall be construed and interpreted under, and in accordance with the laws of Scotland.  The Parties, through their execution hereof, hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish courts for any disputes arising thereunder, including any disputes arising from the services to be performed thereunder.
