All of the work required to extract the Grant:
On average, estates that fall within this range are dealt with within 1 month. We can usually submit the application to the Probate Registry (for non-taxable estates) within 2 weeks.
The price will depend upon the level of experience of the relevant fee earner and the value and complexity of the estate.
The price can vary and can be charged on a fixed fee basis or on an hourly rate basis but typically our fixed fees start from:
