ALL PRICES QUOTED BELOW ARE EXCLUDING VAT.

Abortion Fees: We will charge a proportion of our fee for work carried out when a transaction does not proceed to completion.
We will deal with the estate and make an application for a Grant of Probate which would empower you to act on behalf of and deal with the estate. This application is made to the relevant District Probate Registry. A tax return is required to be submitted to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Custom in respect of the estate whether tax, such as Inheritance Tax is payable or not. Based on the information we receive we will be able to anticipate whether there will be an Inheritance Tax bill to pay on the value of the estate which is currently at a rate of 40%.
Once the total value of the estate is ascertained the tax return and application for a Grant of Probate can be submitted. After the Grant has been obtained, the estate can be fully collected and administered accordingly.
Our charges, like those of all solicitors, are based on a number of different factors.
The Firm’s opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. However, where necessary, Fee Earners may attend to clients at Detention Centres, Home Office, Prisons, and Ports of Entry outside of these hours.
For Immigration matters we usually charge a fixed fee which would be agreed. The fees vary depending on the nature of your instruction. We carry out our work and charge in stages. For example, we would charge for making application and follow up to the time we receive a decision from the Secretary of State to grant or to refuse your application. Thereafter, we would discuss our charges for any further representation, appeal or further application.
