Probate Help: Full Estate Administration Service.
If you just want us to do everything, or at least, most of it, then you need a flexible full estate administration service, not the (probably) lower cost options. You can also use a bespoke service if your needs don’t fit into one of the standard packages. Our function is to match your requirements and the complexity of the estate with a suitable adviser charging sensible fees.
To find out more about the estate administration service, please use the contact form to the right or give us a ring. Full estate administration includes confirming the value of assets and liabilities, organising the grant of probate or letters of administration, identifying the beneficiaries, collecting in the assets, then paying the bills and any tax due. Finally (sorry!) the beneficiaries are paid.
If arguments start, the case then becomes “contentious” and we will have to advise you to get specialist solicitors involved – but we know ones who charge sensible fees.
Our lowest cost associates full estate administration service is normally charged at £95 per hour for non IHT/ Trust estates and £145 for others plus any expenses they have to pay on behalf of the estate. Against many competitors, you would be saving £150 an hour or perhaps much more. And no sneaky extras, just fair and reasonable expenses we have to pay out on your behalf.
If you would prefer a flat fee for the estate administration, subject to no unpleasant surprises, we can arrange that too via associates at a rate of 1.25% of the gross value of the estate plus VAT and third-party costs.
