Our probate services

Our legal team at Broomhead & Saul possess expertise in all aspects of Probate, including the Administration of an Estate, including the following matters:

  • Identification and preservation of all the assets within an estate
  • Arranging for a valuation of assets to take place
  • Organising all tax arrangements including inheritance tax
  • Obtaining a Grant of Probate (when someone dies leaving a Will which appoints executors)
  • Obtaining a Grant of Administration in cases where no Will has been made
  • Preparing the estate accounts
  • Ensuring all beneficiaries of the Will receive their distribution of the Estate

How much does it cost?

This will depend on what you require us to do for you and how complex your estate is.

Savings can also be achieved by working in partnership with our clients, where our clients have the time and inclination. We are dedicated to providing value for money.

Brooomhead & Saul assess every case individually to offer the best price possible. We do not based our charges on a percentage of the estate.  With a large estate this can result in a considerable saving. We always provide an estimate of our fees and always update you if any unanticipated developments indicate a change is likely.
