Probate Solicitors Fees

Probate Fees
We can help you through this difficult process by either obtaining the grant for you or assisting you with the full administration of estate.

Costs Information
The fees set out below cover probate work in uncontested cases where all the assets are in the UK. This is intended as a guide as every estate is different and we suggest that you contact our office for an estimate based on your particular circumstances.

Obtaining a Grant only
Where the estate is less than £325,000, and there is no Inheritance Tax (“IHT” – the tax sometimes payable on estates) to pay and HMRC will accept form IHT205, our fee is £1700.00.

Where the estate is greater than £325,000 then IHT issues may arise. Our fees are likely to be in the region of £770.00 – £1770.00.

In simple cases a Grant can be obtained within 4 weeks of receiving your instructions and valuations of the assets and liabilities of the estate from you.

Disbursements

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as barrister’s fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

Counsel’s fees estimated between £1,070 to £2,700 per day (depending on experience of the advocate) for attending a Tribunal Hearing (including preparation).

Exclusions and Factors Which May Make a Case More Complex

In the event that the issues become more complex, we will make sure you are informed of this at the earliest opportunity and a clear estimate of those extra costs will be provided.

Factors that may lead to an increase in cost include:

  • If it is necessary to make an application to amend your claim or to provide further information about an existing claim
  • Making or defending a costs application
  • Complex preliminary issues such as whether you have a disability (if this is not agreed by the parties)
  • The number of witnesses and documents
  • If it is an automatic unfair dismissal claim e.g. if you are dismissed after blowing the whistle on your employer
  • If there are allegations of discrimination linked to the dismissal

Time Scales

The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved.

If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 4-10 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 20-50 weeks.

This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.

Key Milestones

There are key milestones, which may vary according to individual circumstances. They may be as follows:

  • Taking your initial instructions, reviewing the papers and advising you on merits and likely compensation (this is likely to be revisited throughout the matter and subject to change)
  • Entering into pre-claim conciliation where this is mandatory to explore whether a settlement can be reached;
  • Preparing your claim
  • Reviewing and advising on the response from other party
  • Exploring settlement and negotiating settlement throughout the process
  • Preparing or considering a schedule of loss
  • Preparing for (and attending) a Preliminary Hearing
  • Exchanging documents with the other party and agreeing a bundle of documents
  • Taking witness statements, drafting statements and agreeing their content with witnesses
  • Preparing bundle of documents
  • Reviewing and advising on the other party’s witness statements
  • Agreeing a list of issues, a chronology and/or cast list
  • Preparation and attendance at Final Hearing, including instructions to Counsel
