Obtaining Grant of Probate is usually needed when an external body such as a bank, building society, etc. requires you to provide them with grant of probate before they agree to close down accounts, sell a property in the deceased’s name.

Full Service of Probate – Total cost is negotiated depending on work completed by the firm

Full service of Probate is when you require a solicitor to deal with the probate process from start to finish.  There is a grant application fee in the sum of £155 which is payable by the client.  We cap our fees at the beginning of the case based on an estimate of what work will need to be done on evaluation during our first meetings with the client.  Our fee will be based on our hourly rate and the estimate of time that will be spent on the case.  If work is completed under that estimate the client will pay only for the work done, if our work exceeds the capped fee the client will not be liable for payment of the amount above the original estimate.
