Application for grant of probate/Letter of Administration – (Non Complicated)
£600 Exclusive VAT
£150 – £350 Exclusive VAT
£350 Exclusive VAT
We undertake probate work under a fixed fee arrangement or at hourly rates depending on the complexity of the case. We have an initial consultation with our clients to discuss this and give a fee quote. Our hourly rates start at £121 per hour for a grade D fee earner (trainee solicitor, paralegal and other case workers) to £229 per hour for a grade A fee earner (director, solicitor, or legal executive with over 8 years’ experience). The exact cost will depend on the individual circumstances of the matter. For example, if there is one beneficiary and no property, costs will be at the lower end of the range. If there are multiple beneficiaries, a property and multiple bank accounts, costs will be at the higher end.
We anticipate that work on probate cases will take between 9 and more than 13 hours work but this can be discussed at the initial consultation once the work that needs to be done has been discussed.
This estimate is for estates where:
A higher fixed fee will apply if there are other factors or complexities or if a more senior fee earner works on the case.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Disbursements are NOT included in this estimate and are additional to the fixed fee.
The application fee is £215 if the value of the estate is £5,000 or over – there is no fee if the estate is under £5,000.
