Drafting and Submitting Your Probate Application:

Rather than us managing everything clients often want us to help in a more limited way. We act for many clients where we will only:

  • Draft the Inheritance Tax account and Oath for Executors

  • Submit the application to HM Revenue and Customs and / or the Probate Registry

  • Secure the Grant of Probate by settling any Inheritance Tax that is due

Once you have the Grant you then deal with the remaining administration or, if needed, we can offer further assistance.

Full Administration & Distribution:

This would be where you hand all of the work over to us. What is involved will vary greatly depending on the complexity of the estate but will generally include:

  • Getting valuations of the assets and liabilities in the estate.

  • Preparing and submitting the application for Probate

  • Paying any Inheritance Tax due

  • Closing bank accounts, selling property and gathering assets in

  • Settling any debts

  • Distribution to the beneficiaries

Costs will be based on time spent at the appropriate hourly rate for your fee earner. The time spent will depend on the complexity of the estate. 


For a simple estate where there maybe bank accounts, shares and a property, on average, time spent will be 10 – 15 hours so a fee estimate of £2,000 – £2,500 would be reasonable.
