Head of Probate


No one wants to think about death or what will happen after they have gone. However, the responsibility of winding up your affairs can be eased for your family with careful Will planning.

Some people think that it is not necessary to make a Will and that their estate will automatically pass to their relatives. Often, particularly in the case of an unmarried couple, this is not the case and matters can be complicated by not having a Will.

Regardless of how much you have to leave, it is important to set out legally who you want to inherit. If you have children from a previous relationship, it is particularly important that you make a Will, so that their position is protected.

Wills & Probate
Probate and Administration of an Estate

When a loved one dies it is sometimes daunting knowing where to start.

As Solicitors, we are able to assist you every step of the way whether it is just helping you get a Grant of Representation or taking on the whole responsibility of winding up an estate on your behalf. We can also take on partially completed probates if you have found that matters have become more complicated than first thought.

We can take on some probate matters on a fixed fee basis so that you know, from the outset, the total amount of costs involved. This means that you do not have the worry of being charged for every call, letter or meeting. If there is some reason that we cannot offer a fixed fee arrangement (e.g. if the estate is complex) we will tell you at the outset.

We can deal with probates from start to finish for approximately 1% to 3% of the gross value of the estate + VAT (not including the usual probate costs such as Court fees).

Please note:

We charge an ‘uplift’ for Trusts in Wills (starting at £300.00 plus VAT), extendice IHT advice and for urgent Wills; please contact us for details.

We can also offer packages for Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney when completed together.

We are able to offer home appointments for a small additional charge to clients who are unable to make it to one of our offices.
