Wills & Probate
We offer a confidential, personal service on all aspects of making or amending your will, to give you the peace of mind of knowing that your estate will pass to the people or charitable organisations chosen by you.
Our areas of work include the drafting of wills, administration of trusts and estates including estate planning, mitigation of inheritance tax, lasting powers of attorney, court of protection deputyships, living wills, long term care and elderly client advice.
Our charges for dealing with probate and the administration of a deceased person’s estate are calculated chiefly with reference to the amount of time recorded to the matter, applying the hourly rate from time to time of the relevant fee-earner. There are also certain circumstances (for example where the partners in the firm are to act as executors, or otherwise take on a higher level of responsibility than usual) where a further charge may be made, calculated as a percentage of the value of the estate of the deceased. Circumstances vary from case to case but you will be advised of the charging structure at the outset of the matter, and before work is completed.
