Probate Costs

Probate Costs

At NewLaw we guarantee a fixed fee for all our probate work and we guarantee we won’t be beaten on price. If you find a cheaper quote for the same service, we promise to match the price.

When we calculate your fixed fee, we take into account all the complexities of the case and the fees we charge are always fair and reasonable, which is also a requirement of this type of legal work. Any charges must take into account a combination of factors including:

  • The complexity of the matter or the difficulty of the questions raised for which legal advice has been sought;
  • The skill, labour and specialised knowledge and responsibility involved;
  • The time spent on the matter;
  • The number and importance of the documents prepared or considered;
  • The amount or value of any money or property involved;
  • Whether any land that is involved is registered land;
  • The importance of the matter to the client.

Our fixed fees give you the peace of mind of knowing what legal costs you are paying from the outset. The fixed fee will not change regardless of the amount of time or work involved provided the nature of the instructions and the complexity of the work required does not change substantially. If you do alter your instructions or the matter becomes more complex and therefore the work you want us to do changes, we will quote you a new fee and put this in writing.

For any work carried out, you will be sent an invoice for our fees to which VAT will be added. Sometimes we may also need to incur third party charges known as ‘disbursements’, in order to advise a client correctly e.g. a fee to clarify property ownership at the Land Registry or to carry out the instructions e.g. a fee to the Probate Court to obtain a Grant of Representation.
