How much will a Solicitor charge for probate ? we are asked this question daily. We charge a simple fixed fee for probate ,we confirm the cost at the start of the case so that you know exactly what the fee will be once probate has been obtained. But how do more traditional solicitors operate and what is the basis behind their fees ? most Solicitors still tend to charge for their services by quoting an hourly rate coupled with a small percentage of the estate. The difficulty with this method is knowing how mch the final cost will be. You don’t want to be paying for the inefficiency of a solicitor ! Our fixed fee service is very competitive as we specialise in probate, have case management systems, with fee earners dealing solely with probate nothing else. By focusing on probate this ensures that we not only deliver an excellent service but do so at a price that is affordable and fair to our clients. If you are seeking a quote for probate, be vary of what banks charge, the feedback from clients is sadly not great, they tend to charge 2-4% of the estate even more. There has been lots of bad publicity about overcharging by banks while their role as Executors has also come under investigation by the OFT. Always shop around and if a solicitor or bank can’t give you a fixed fee quote for probate, then be weary of instructing them.
