Fees In Respect of Wills and Probate

Wills

A single Will, assuming that it is straight forward and does not involve complex issues such as trusts, tax or estate planning, £150.00 plus VAT.

Husband and wife/partners making mirror Wills in similar terms £200.00 plus VAT for the two Wills (if husband and wife/partners are making Wills with significantly different provisions they will be charged as two single Wills).

Please note that we do not provide taxation advice or financial services.  If such advice is required you should seek advice from an accountant or independent financial advisor.

Probate

A fixed fee can be offered in respect of initial advice and work required to obtain a Grant of Probate only i.e. not advising or carrying out any work following the Grant of Probate in connection with the administration of the estate.

A fixed fee in respect of obtaining a Grant of Probate only (assuming that the estate is not complex, for example, assets involved do not have a value in excess of £ 325,000.00 and there is not a large number of individual assets) , £500 to £1,000.00 plus VAT.

If the value exceeds £ 325,000.00 or more assets are involved an estimate of costs can be given or a fixed fee may be agreed depending upon the value of the estate and number of the assets.
