Probate Costs

Our charges will be calculated as set out below and based on the value of the estate as well as the type of the asset in the estate.

This service includes meetings with you and perhaps others, reading and working on papers, preparation of documents, correspondence, telephone calls and attendances, and time spent travelling away from the office when this is necessary. We will complete and submit relevant forms and other required documentation for taxation, forms for the grant of probate, as well as preparation of Estate Accounts and distribution of the assets to the beneficiaries of the estate.

The below prices do not include VAT or disbursements.
