PROBATE CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Reviews

How do we compare to solicitor fees on the high street?

On average, it costs about £2,700 to deal with someone’s estate in the UK. By using our grant only service and sorting out the estate admin yourself, you can save as much as 80% in unnecessary solicitor fees.

Here are the top three ways we help you save money:

Fixed Fee Quote

We don’t believe in charging on an hourly or percentage basis, so we always offer a fixed-fee quote upfront. This helps make sure there are no hidden costs or surprises to our clients during your probate application.

Transparent Service

Probate fees are often higher on the high street because people end up being sold full estate administration. We offer this service too, but we understand that most people just need help getting the grant.
