Probate & Estates

It is very difficult when someone has died and there is often confusion about what to do next. We therefore offer a free half an hour meeting with Katherine Oakes on all bereavements in order to discuss the estate.

We give upfront estimates on dealing with the administration of the estate.

It may be that you have the time and inclination to deal with the administration of the estate yourself and just wish us to obtain the grant of probate or letter of administration for you. If this is the case we charge a fixed fee probate service of £975 including VAT to obtain the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration.  This will normally not even be 1% of the value of the estate but can save you valuable time and of course form filling. You can then deal with the administration of the estate. Click here to view our fixed fee grant leaflet.

If you decide you wish us to do all the administration then we will charge an hourly rate of £185 + VAT and in some instances a value element but this would depend on the size and complexity of the estate. We can act in the sale of property as well we will be able to provide an estimate of timescales for the administration of the estate once we have more information from you.

Please see our easy print bereavement booklet which gives loads of really helpful advice and information on what you need to know about when a loved one has passed away whether you are an executor, administrator or surviving spouse.

Please contact Katherine Oakes to arrange a free no obligation meeting
