Probate and Estate Administration
Our Pledge to you
Most High Street Firms will charge an hourly rate, as well as a percentage of the entire estate. We at Roper James only charge an hourly rate for the work we actually do on your behalf and make no claim in relation of the value of the Estate.
Applying for the appropriate Grant together with collection and distribution of assets
Probate & Estate Administration
The task of an Executor can be onerous at times and being aware of your personal liability in this role is essential.
Being mindful of the provisions of the Inheritance (Provisions for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 and the effect it can have on an estate must never be overlooked so the help of a dedicated professional can be priceless.
Our staff can provide sound advice from a wealth of experience in this field, meaning your time as an Executor will be without worry. Matters will be dealt with as efficiently and expeditiously as possible so all those involved are updated on a regular basis giving you peace of mind and our initial fixed fee quotes prevent any unexpected costs.
We can offer a level of service to suit your needs from obtaining a Grant of Probate, to a full Estate Administration Service.
You choose the level of service required and we can do the rest.
Cost to obtain a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration only
Obtaining a Grant of Probate Only – non-taxable estate £650 plus VAT
Obtaining a Grant of Probate Only – taxable estate £1250 plus VAT
For either of the above options you would provide date of death balances on all assets and liabilities in the estate and we would prepare the Oath and relevant tax return and apply for the Grant of Probate on your behalf.
