We can deal with the whole administration of an estate for you easing the worry.

There are two charging options we can provide to Executors. These are:

Fixed Fee

Our fees for this are based on the value of the estate and vary between 1%-3% based on the gross value of the estate (plus VAT and disbursements).

Hourly Rate

Alternatively, you may want us to act on an hourly rate. This may be beneficial if the estate is small or if the matter could become contentious. Our usual hourly rates range from £150.00 to £185.00 plus VAT per hour (depending on the experience of the person assisting you).

Grant of Probate

If you do not need our assistance for the whole administration of the estate we are able to obtain a Grant of Probate for a fixed charge of £650.00 plus VAT plus disbursements.
On average, straight-forward Estates are completed within 4 – 6 months.  However, this varies according to the size of the Estate, whether the Estate is taxable, the number and type of assets and liabilities and the number of beneficiaries.
