Wills & Probate Cost

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.
