Making a Will is Important
We write wills from the most simple bequests to those involving complicated trusts and inheritance tax mitigation. At your initial appointment we discuss your individual needs. We advise you of the type of will you require and the costs involved. We do not operate a ‘one size fits all’ policy.
Probate & Estate Administration: Our Costs
We can work on a ‘grant only’ basis if you wish, for which a fixed fee will be charged.
Complete Estate Administration
The costs of this vary and are bespoke to each situation. We will discuss all applicable fees in an open manner when we first meet the client.
Cost Effective Probate Services
We usually charge on a percentage basis of the gross estate. However this is flexible, depending on the value and complexity of the estate. We aim to give an effective and cost efficient service.
Lasting Power of Attorney
We believe everyone should have a power of attorney in place. Our service includes preparation of the document, acting as certificate provider and registration with the OPG (Office of the Public Guardian).
Don’t leave it too late. Contact us now for advice on the procedures involved.
We charge on an hourly rate for advice and assistance with regard to Deputyship. Recent Deputyship applications have costs between £1,000 to £2,000 (plus VAT). There are additional court and doctor’s fees.
