Kanaval Terms & Conditions
By continuing to use this website you are confirming that you accept our terms and conditions of use set out below. If you do not accept the terms and conditions, you must leave this website immediately.
This website is provided by Kanaval Consultancy Limited, a limited company with registration number 12847241.
Please note, as we do not provide reserved legal activities (conveyancing, advocacy, litigation, immigration or probate), we are able to operate as a non-regulated entity. This means that we, as an organisation, are not regulated by, or answerable to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). However, all legal work is carried out by our fully qualified and experienced solicitors who are regulated by the SRA and who are subject to the SRA's Standards and Regulations, including its Code of Conduct.
Operating as a non-regulated entity reduces our overheads, which in turn, means that we can deliver high quality legal services at a fraction of the price charged by our competitors.
If you need any information about this website or any of our services please contact us:

Our complaints policy
We are committed to providing a high-quality legal service to all of our clients. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards. We would always want our clients to raise any concerns as soon as practicable with the member of staff who is undertaking their work.
If you have a complaint which you feel has not been dealt with satisfactorily by the member of staff concerned, please contact us at email@example.com
What will happen next?
We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within 3 working days of receiving it, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve a review your matter file and a discussion with the member of staff who acted for you.
We will consider whether the matter can be dealt with more informally, for example, by correspondence or telephone, or whether a meeting with you is required. If so, we will then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. We will do this within 15 working days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
Within 3 working days of any meeting, we will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions that we agreed with you.
If you are still not satisfied, you may be able to complain to the Legal Ombudsman. They will look at complaints independently and accessing the Ombudsman will not affect how we handle your case. Most ‘consumer’ clients (as opposed to large businesses) will be able to make use of the Ombudsman scheme however there are restrictions for some larger clients. Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
Within 6 months of receiving a final response to your complaint;
Within 1 year of the date of the act or omission about which you are concerned; or
Within 1 year of you realising there was a concern
If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them at:
Office of the Legal Ombudsman
PO Box 6806
Please note that the Legal Ombudsman is there to deal with concerns about the level of service received. Where there are more serious concerns that a solicitor has been involved in professional misconduct, then reports can also be made to the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the regulator of solicitors. This could be for quite unusual and serious acts of misconduct such as dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. Obviously, we do not anticipate any such problems arising and would ask that you notify the matter supervisor straight away if you have any such concerns. You can find out more about the Solicitors Regulation Authority including their contact details and professional conduct rules on their website: www.sra.org.uk
6. If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.
