Whenever we are asked to undertake legal work in relation to the administration of a deceased’s estate, including the obtaining of a grant of probate, we offer a full, detailed, costs quotation, including our own time charges and the method of calculating these, as well as likely expenses needing to be incurred in the course of the proposed work if this proceeds as originally envisaged.
All charges detailed in that quotation will be subject to VAT payable in addition.
We do not offer one-size-fits-all costs quotations. The basis of our charging and likely total costs through to the conclusion will depend on the nature of each individual matter.
Our charges are calculated by reference to then current rates, with expenses in addition.
Any legal staff member leading the work on the matter day-to-day will have appropriate skills and experience sufficient to competently do that work, as will the senior staff member or partner responsible for supervising of work.
In our quotation letter, or by email or letter sent in parallel to or shortly after that, we will explain the projected key stages of the matter, with applicable information as to possible timescales.
