We charge based on the complexity of the work and the time taken.

The time taken to undertake the work necessary to take care of an estate will vary significantly depending on a number of factors. It is not possible to provide a general price for the work. However, we do not charge based on a percentage of an estate but instead on the complexity of the work and the time taken.

We can either work to a fixed fee or charge on a time basis. If the latter, we will provide you with an estimate in advance of undertaking any work. If we identify anything as the case progresses that is likely to significantly alter the fee, we will bring this to your attention as soon as possible.
