January 2020 - Faculty Fees

The fee payable on lodging a Faculty Petition was increased on 1 January 2020 to £260.00 for a Chancellor's Faculty. This fee applies in uncontested cases. (In the Diocese of Peterborough, this fee will only apply to private faculty applications, as faculty fees for church applications are dealt with through the diocesan budget.) An additional fee may be payable for preparatory or ancillary work, including sending correspondence, but only in exceptional circumstances and if the Chancellor of the Diocese so directs.

See The Ecclesiastical Judges, Legal Officers and Others (Fees) Order 2019

For fees in contested cases, see also Notes for Guidance.
