What can I expect to happen?

The probate process can differ from case to case. Due to the nature and sensitivity of probate work, cases can often be quite complex and may take time to resolve. You will be advised by one of our solicitors on timescales following your free consultation.

How much will it cost me?

We offer different levels of service when dealing with probate – some we can offer on a fixed fee basis.

Probate Assistance

A fixed fee of £99 + VAT.

This is a 45 minute interview with an experienced probate lawyer. This is ideal when you are going to deal with the probate yourself but would like some guidance from an expert.

Obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration

A fixed fee of £350 + VAT plus registry fees.

We will locate the Will, you provide the relevant information then we complete the relevant Inheritance tax forms and submit them to the Probate Registry. We obtain the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration – this then enables you to gather and distribute the assets.

Estate Administration

It is not possible for us to offer a fixed fee for this service as each case is different however, you will be advised of a no-commitment cost at your free consultation.

This level of service is where we take care of the whole process from start to finish on your behalf.

Hi Shetal, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for what you have done, and all your hard work over the last 12 months. On the back of this the evidence which was presented in Court was second to none and no stone unturned. There has always been a professional yet welcoming service from you and your colleagues. This is a very an important factor with the families that I support and the need for them to feel comfortable. I would happily recommend Best Solicitors and your services to others.Claire Walker, Family Support Worker, Home-Start South Yorkshire

I am an Advocacy worker at Ashiana Sheffield. I support BAMER women who suffered or are still suffering from Domestic Violence, Forced Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking and Honour Based Violence. Many of our clients needed a family law solicitor. I chose Best Solicitors for my clients because they have a very good reputation. Shetal Gudgeon has been a great support for Ashiana’s service users. She would meet them on short notice because in most cases they need urgent help. The consultation session is always free of charge for my vulnerable clients. Not only is Shetal competent but she is also empathetic and knows how to listen to distressed clients. All of my clients have had successful outcomes to their cases. I am glad I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Shetal Gudgeon and I have recommended her to many other professionals.Myriam Trabelsi – Advocacy worker
