The fees for uncontested Probate vary depending on:-
The reason why this varies is because this will determine how much work is involved. A straightforward, simple probate matter will cost £1,500 plus 20% VAT, and the fees could increase depending on the factors above to around £10,000. We offer clients the benefit of a fixed fee. The range of this is from 3% to 7% of the estate. The benefit of a fixed fee is that you will know how much you pay based on the value of the estate.
Excellent service here. Needed a one off legal document and they were able to accommodate us the next day. We were given good advice. Highly recommend.
Chris took the time to explain several items and offered some very good advice. I will definitely use them again.
