In England & Wales, in order for probate to be court approved, an application fee is required. The fee is at a starting flat rate of £215 for estates over £5,000, but this can be reduced to £155 if a Probate Solicitor is appointed.

Cost of Probate Solicitor

In England & Wales, the Law Society sets a recommended cost of 1.5% of the value of the deceased’s real property, with an added 1.5% on the value of each further asset. This rate is considerably lower than banks, who will typically handle estates for a 4% return.

Tax liability

It is important to note that before grant of probate an estate has to pay off any inheritance tax due. Inheritance tax will apply to estates over and above the nil rate band of £325,000.

“I was put in touch with Lewis Nedas Law through a mutual friend and I was not disappointed. The team were nothing but straight forward, honest and realistic about the nature of my case and the expected outcome from the minute I got in contact and were willing to take over from the previous company at very short notice. With their unrivalled experience and expertise in their profession the outcome was even better than expected and I couldn’t recommend them enough.”
