One of our solicitors, Hannah Starling, carries out probate work. She qualified in 2018 and is supervised by Peter Blake-Turner, the senior partner. She may also be assisted for time to time by a paralegal.
Our probate services include an initial review of the papers, obtaining the Grant of Probate and dealing with the collection and distribution of the estate. We will also liaise with HMRC in relation to inheritance tax.
We will provide you with a fee quote, depending on the complexity of the estate, but our fees typically range between £2,349 to £23,495 (excluding VAT and disbursements). This is based on hourly rates ranging from £115 to £600, depending on the complexity of your case and the experience of the lawyer.
The disbursements typically involved are the Court fee to obtain the Grant of Probate which is £155.00 plus £1.50 per copy required and the London Gazette fee which is £91.84 (inclusive of VAT). There may also be disbursements if property is involved or, for example, if the estate includes shares and you need to pay a lost share certificate administration fee or stockbroker fees.
