The quote we provide you will be based on the information you have given us about the estate. The quote is valid for 30 days, after which we reserve the right to re-quote. Our charges will be calculated based on what we perceive to be the level of work required to fully administer the estate, and we do not calculate costs based on a percentage value of the estate. We will provide a quote at the outset based upon the information you provide us about the estate, but should you subsequently need further services, we will advise on the cost of these as required.
Our prices for our full estate administration service start from £2,340 (excluding VAT and the probate fee).

Please note, the above figures are based on full estate administration averages only, and we will provide you with a bespoke quote at the appropriate time based on the complexity of the estate administration and legal work involved. All figures quoted above are exclusive of VAT.
We are currently unable to provide average timescales for estate administration due to the significant level of delays experienced at the Probate Registry.
In addition to the costs for the work we will carry out, it is typically necessary to incur third party costs as part of the estate administration process. Each estate is different but these third party costs could include:
• Will search
• Missing asset and liability search
• Legal advertising (known as section 27 Trustee Act 1925 cover)
• Beneficiary ID check
• Property valuation
• Land Registry Search
The cost of these third party charges will vary on a case by case basis. As an example average, an estate that contains a single property and is due to be passed on to two beneficiaries over the age of 18 would incur third party costs of £525.00.
