If you need professional advice (and modest fees) in dealing with Probate in London, please do contact us.  If you need paid (albeit at low fees) probate help call us HERE and we’ll ask our local Probate Consultant to help with the Principal Probate Registry Office London.

Our fees are especially competitive for London probate cases. we work from a pleasant office in the countryside near Eastbourne, with really low overheads.   Our people are available to talk to you personally on most weekdays, and one of our senior personnel is usually available on Saturdays from 9.30 to 12.30 to answer clients questions.   We are easily contactable by phone, fax, email or Skype and you will not often be told we are too busy to speak to you.

Better yet or fees are designed to be fair.

  1. We charge by the minute, not in units of 6 minutes where a 20 second call is billed as 6 minutes, and a 6 minute 10 seconds call as 12 minutes.  That sort of charging inflates bills substantially.
  2. We don’t charge extra (above the time) for letters and phone calls.
  3. We do not expect a massive commission on top of the full time charge.  Some firms charge up to 1.8% of the value of the estate as an extra fee.  This commission (or “responsibility allowance”) can triple the bill!
  4. We charge at the rate needed for the work – you won’t be charged top rate for straightforward cases, or for simple work on complex cases.

Our service is simple, responsive and caring.  Why pay London Probate fees when you can probably save perhaps half of the fees and benefit from a much more personal service?
