Unlike some firms, we don’t charge based solely on the value of the estate or on an hourly rate but focus on the volume of work to do. For example, if we were dealing with an estate valued at £150,000 and another with a value of £300,000, both estates consisting of one property, one bank account and identical distribution and will planning then the fees would be the same.
