PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

Whether you need help throughout the whole estate administration process, just assistance to obtain a Grant of representation, or general advice to put you on the right track, I can help.

When someone has passed away, there can be a lot to deal with, emotionally and practically.  I can help guide you through the process to make things as smooth as possible, through this difficult time.

 

You may want guidance on where to start, just with the Grant application if one is required, or help throughout the estate administration process. 

I can offer a three tier service.  Consultations to discuss what you will need to do - just at the outset or at regular intervals if you prefer.  Assistance in obtaining all of the information required and dealing with the application for the Grant, before you continue the estate administration from there, or the full estate administration service from start to finish.  As personal representative, you're in control of the assistance you require.

Whatever your needs, contact me today and I can discuss with you how I can help.  Once I know your requirements, I can confirm a fixed fee with you at the outset, for added peace of mind.

As a guide, for straightforward Grant applications, where Inheritance Tax is not an issue, fees will be £695 plus VAT and Court fees, fixed by the Court.

For more complex Grant applications, where Inheritance Tax issues arise, fees will be £1,250 plus VAT and Court fees, to reflect the additional work required.

To administer an estate, this will be charged at an hourly rate of £200 plus VAT per hour.  As a guide, a full estate administration can take approximately  15-30 hours, depending on its complexity, so fees could be in the region of £3,000 - £6,000 plus VAT and disbursements, such as Court fees.  Once we have more information about the estate and can review the work that may be required, fees can be confirmed at the outset, for added peace of mind.
