You are being asked to deal with something you know very little about at a time when you are emotionally drained. Solicitors and banks can offer a fixed price service which will take the stress of estate administration away from you.
However, you will pay handsomely for this. For example, a leading high street bank will charge 4% plus vat on the first £500,000 of your estate.
Solicitors might charge around 3% plus vat of the estate and/or hourly rates.
We have teamed up with a leading probate specialist who offer a fixed price fee (typically in the region of 1% plus vat of your loved one’s estate). The fee will be set once they have assessed how much work is involved and this fee will not change. This gives you the peace of mind that the bill will not spiral out of control. This will take away most of the stress of estate administration and still leave your family with almost 99% of the estate.
