* Probate service fees

Probate cases can vary greatly in complexity. Our charges are based on time taken, rather than a percentage of the value of the estate, because we feel this is fairer, and in most cases tends to work out cheaper. Our hourly rate is £95 plus VAT per hour.

We would have an initial meeting with you at no charge and no obligation, to understand the complexity of the estate and to give an indication of the likely fee, but as an indication, our estimated cost for a relatively straightforward grant of probate is £1,500 to £2,000.

In addition to our charges there may be other costs that could apply such as a probate application fee, bankruptcy searches, or fees associated with sale or transfer of a property in the estate. These fees can vary and so we will give you a more precise estimate as part of our initial meeting.
