Probate price and service transparency
When someone close to you dies the thought of dealing with their estate can seem like a daunting process.
Our specialist team is extremely experienced in dealing with a wide range of issues around deceased estates, we offer compassionate advice and are dedicated to helping unravel any confusion and ensure the process runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
The cost information provided is general and should be used as a guide only. To help you at this difficult time, our experts will discuss your specific probate requirements during a no charge, one hour meeting at our offices to help you understand the process, as well as the general problems and liabilities you might be exposed to when administering an estate. After the meeting we will be able to provide you with an accurate, personalised quote.
Any cost information shown below is based on an uncontested probate (i.e. there are no disputes) and where all assets are in the UK.
For completeness we have set out the various disbursements but it should be noted that these will be the same for any firm and in addition to any fees quoted by our firm. Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Our fees are calculated on a time spent basis, we have a range of hourly rates across the team and the fees will depend on the complexity of the matter and the person dealing with it.
In some circumstances, for example on the death of the first spouse where there is no inheritance tax due, we may be able to agree a fixed fee with you rather than the usual hourly rate.
