All legal fees are a fixed price and won't change.

Grant of Probate

£500 to £900 legal fee

A Grant of Probate is the document issued by the Probate Registry confirming that you are the person that is legally entitled to administer an estate. This will allow you to distribute the assets that the deceased owned.

Estate Administration
