When a person passes away, it is often be a very distressing time. SA Law’s sympathetic and practical help will guide you through the probate and estate administration process. We can handle all the necessary legal and financial requirements of collecting and distributing assets after paying off any outstanding debts. The amount you pay includes the fee for our work and any necessary payments we will make to third parties on your behalf, which are associated with probate applications and estate administration.
Probate requires a personalised quote because of the varying amount of work based on the circumstances. This is why all our fees are estimations and we advise you to call us for your bespoke quote.
Two key factors are whether you require us to undertake just the probate application, or if you need us to carry out further work, such as paying bills and legacies and notifying third parties. Our fee will also be slightly more if the estate is subject to an Inheritance Tax payment. To find out if the Inheritance Tax applies, we recommend reading the HMRC Bereavement Guide.
An initial conversation with one of our experts gives us an opportunity to ask the right questions. To discuss your situation in complete confidence, call our St Albans office on 01727 798000.
We also offer services for Wills and Trusts amongst our Probate department. Take a look at our service page for more information.
