Sensible and transparent fees
Making and maintaining a Will is a sensible and indeed vital way to secure your family’s future. Specialist advice is essential and we can advise you according to your individual needs to make you aware of any opportunities to save tax through trusts or other means.
By asking you for the ‘cast list’ – ie, the full names, dates of birth and addresses of all those to be mentioned in a Will together with some simple indication of who is to get what helps to streamline the process. Most Wills are straightforward and Wills made between husband and wife with benefits for children. However, we also deal with inheritance tax issues and the creation of trusts, where appropriate.
Our fees range from between £80 and £250 plus VAT and we can normally produce a bespoke Will within seven working days. We do require to see the person making the Will and can arrange home visits provided the Client resides within the East Devon area.
Our experienced staff handle all aspects of Probate whether there be a Will or an Intestacy. We gather details of all assets and liabilities, complete the requisite IHT forms and attend the Executor/Administrator on swearing the Oath. Our dedicated and friendly staff are wholly concerned with Probate matters.
Keeping clients and beneficiaries informed and making interim distributions as soon as possible during the course of Probate ensures that everyone is kept in the picture.
Our fees can either be calculated on the time involved where the hourly rate charge for Solicitor is £200 per hour plus VAT or a percentage charge based upon the value of the gross Estate.
