Our pricing process.

Our client services team are the first point of contact to gaining a fixed price quote for the administration of an estate.

Our specialists will take the time to speak with you and learn about the details of the estate. We will ask questions like, is there a Will? Does the estate include property? Is there a surviving spouse? These questions will help us provide you with an accurate fixed price quote using our bespoke software.

Indicative pricing.

 

The quote we provide you will be based on the information you have given us about the estate.  The quote is valid for thirty 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 to the estate, and we do not calculate costs based on a percentage value of the estate.  Based on estates we have administered in the last two years* (*statistics taken from November 2016 to November 2018), our average fees are as follows:

 

 

Simple estate 
(No Inheritance Tax return to HMRC necessary)

house

Average fee  of

Please note, these figures are based on 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.

The figures are inclusive of VAT but do not include Probate Registry fees. Probate Registry fees will be changing to be based on the value of the estate as of the 6th April 2019.

Every action, decision and service we offer at Kings Court Trust goes some way to achieving our purpose - helping families to move on. That’s why we are so pleased and proud to receive feedback from our families.



“Exceptionally supportive, professional and compassionate. Guided me through the process during a very difficult and emotional time. All questions and enquiries were answered immediately or a clear timeline was given if queries had to be taken away. Always dealt with my questions with great compassion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kings Court Trust.”

“During a stressful time, we used Kings Court Trust on the recommendation of a friend. I personally found them to be extremely helpful, professional and knowledgeable. They took away the stress of understanding the very difficult process which is the last thing anyone wants to deal with after the death of a family member.”
