Probate Fixed Fees

Our detailed costs and typical timing are laid out in detail on the probate page – here however here is a summary of the fees.

 

If you need assistance with administering an Estate, we can offer the following services:

Renunciation Deed/Power Reserved Notice £96 (£80+VAT)

*In accordance with the Law Society’s suggested guidelines, an additional percentage will be made on our final bill, based on the gross value of the assets collected or transferred; the maximum percentages that will be applicated in this case are 0.5% on the residence and 1% on the remaining assets.  VAT is added to these charges.

An additional fee of £120 (£100+VAT) is payable if a Hospital or Home Visit is preferred.

In addition, the Probate Registry fee to register a Grant is currently £155 plus £1.50 for each additional copy.

We recommend that our Clients place Trustee Notices in the local newspaper and London Gazette.  This fee varies but is usually in the region of £200-£300.  We will obtain a quote for you before the order is made.

If the net Estate is valued under £5,000, the Registry fees are exempt.
