Each uncontested probate case is different – fees can range from £600 plus VAT to £30,000 plus VAT depending on the work involved and whether there is any inheritance tax to pay. We ask for £250-500 on account depending on the complexity of the matter or a minimum of £250 on account. Wills are paid up front.
We can offer a fixed fee once we have clear instructions from each client. Your case handler will provide information on costs at the appropriate time.
All fees are plus VAT
