Help obtaining Grant of Probate

For some time we have been offering our clients a fixed fee for all the usual work carried out in obtaining a Grant of Probate* and the administration of the estate.

We understand that some Personal Representatives** wish to deal with most of the estate administration themselves, but would value assistance at the outset, to ensure that they obtain the necessary Grant quickly and efficiently.

For clients seeking Help obtaining Grant of Probate, but who wish to deal with the rest of the administration themselves, we offer a fixed fee of £750. This is available in cases where no Inheritance Tax is payable and only an abbreviated Inheritance Tax return is required.

Our fees are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate.
