The costs and fees of using a Solicitor for probate
If you are an Executor and want some help with probate, we are frequently asked two questions what are the costs and how long will it take. While there are lots of companies offering probate services, we are one of the few to genuinely offer a fixed fee. We believe the clarity of a fixed fee service, is much easier for clients to understand exactly what the costs are at the beginning of the case as opposed to hourly rates and percentages. So how much is the typical cost ? a lot of clients prefer to undertake the administration of probate themselves eg. notifying utility companies of a death etc, and as such leave the legal side to ourselves which involves the application to the probate registry for the issue of the Grant of probate. It is this aspect of the probate process which most Executors seek our help on. Thereafter as part of our fixed fee service we will often collect the assets as well, as we are familiar with all the forms and procedures of the banks.
