Mark Reynolds Solicitors has a great deal of experience in helping people through the process of dealing with an estate. We understand that it can be a daunting process, which is why we have an expert team of probate lawyers based in Runcorn, who will assist you in whatever way possible – whether securing a grant of probate or handling all aspects of administration.
The Probate Process
When an estate is clear and simple, we can help by “extracting” the Grant for you. Generally, you would provide the information about the estate, such as any assets and liabilities at the date of death, so that we may produce and submit the application for the Grant on your behalf.
Once the Grant has been obtained this is then passed on to the executor/personal representative who can then proceed to gather the assets, settle debts of the estate and distribute the remaining estate in accordance with the Will or intestacy rules.
For peace of mind, if you would like us to extract the Grant, we offer a fixed fee of £750 plus VAT and disbursements for a simple estate. Typically, this would be a simple estate with no inheritance tax liability or possible disputes.
How Mark Reynolds Solicitors Can Help
It can be a difficult and time-consuming task to obtain probate. Appointing professionals helps relieve your loved ones from this burden. We will handle the entire probate administration so that probate is granted as quickly as possible and you can then call in all of the assets.
Probate Runcorn Prices
Our experienced Runcorn probate specialists provide affordable and comprehensive probate services for our clients. Some probate firms and other solicitors may charge on a percentage basis or a combination of an hourly rate and percentage which may result in significantly higher fees than an hourly rate alone, particularly given the continual rise in house prices which will be the most significant asset in most estates. At Mark Reynolds Solicitors Runcorn, we have a straightforward charging structure that lets you know how much our work is likely to cost from the outset.
Our fees for Probate are based upon an hourly charge of £215 plus VAT.
We will always provide you with a quote for the expected number of hours we would expect an estate to take and the overall cost at the start. Before you instruct us to proceed we will ensure you are updated on the fees as the matter progresses.
We will also advise you of the disbursements that will be incurred, for example:
- Oath swear fees, typically, £10.00.
- Probate application fee £155.00.
- A sealed copy of the Grant £1.50 per copy
We believe this is the most cost-effective way of providing this service to our clients.
