Probate Legal Fees

Probate Full Administration – We will obtain the documentation needed to sell or transfer assets, advise you on your duties and liabilities as you deal with Probate, and apply for the Grant of Probate on your behalf. We will then pay off all debts and disburse the estate to the beneficiaries in a timely fashion. A Full Administration typically takes 10-12 months.
 
For Full Administration, we offer a fixed fee of 1% of the gross value of the estate with a minimum fee of £2,400.00 plus VAT.
Fees for this service are normally paid from the assets held by the Estate. No ‘upfront’ payments are typically required.
 
Probate Grant only – We complete the Probate Application and Inheritance Tax return. We draft a Statement of Truth to support your application for the Grant of Probate. We make the application to the court and obtain the Grant.
It usually takes one month from the date of instruction to be ready to apply for a Grant of Probate. The courts typically take 6-8 weeks to release the Grant.
We offer a fixed fee of £1,250.00 plus VAT and disbursements for simple estates (estates requiring the IHT 205 and IHT 217 tax returns).
We offer a fixed fee of £2,400.00 plus VAT and disbursements for complex estates (estates requiring the IHT 400 tax returns).
 
Deed of Variation – £350 plus VAT.

Each LPA needs to be registered with the court, the Office of Public Guardian before it can be used. The court fee is currently £82 per document and is payable directly to the court.
If the person who is making the LPA (the donor) receives certain means-tested benefits when you apply to register it, you will not have to pay anything – this is called an exemption.
If the donor’s income before tax is less than £12,000 a year, you will only have to pay half – this is known as a 50% remission.
