Executors and next of kin normally appoint a professional company like Valued Estates, together with our solicitors, to deal with the entire process on their behalf at a fixed price. This often means that the costs of the administration are shared between all beneficiaries. Our expertise and fixed price probate administration services saves families a lot of time and means avoiding potentially costly mistakes and potential claims.
If, after a free probate visit, you wish to use our fixed price administration service we will ask you to sign off our fee agreement. We will establish which areas you would wish to deal with personally. Most of our families wish to deal just with personal effects, we can very easily deal with everything else. Our price will reflect your involvement. We regularly deal with relatives who live further afield and many who live abroad. Logistically it can be difficult for them to deal with certain aspects of an estate. Our service is ideally suited for these situations. We can redirect post, collect documents, obtain valuations, pay Inheritance Tax, instruct estate agents, deal with conveyancing etc. and all this is included in our fixed fee. There are no extra charges for any travelling, emails, postage or phone calls for example – just one fixed fee agreed at the outset. And best of all you will receive regular weekly updates, via email or telephone, keeping you informed of the estate’s progress from start to finish.
The fixed price is based on the work involved for us to administer the estate correctly on your behalf. It is payable from the estate and includes our solicitor fees.
The fee is based on the number and type of assets in an estate based upon our experience dealing with many similar estates.
You will find our price is very competitive and our friendly service, including weekly updates from your administrator, always exceeds expectations. Please see our testimonials page for comments from hundreds of appreciative families.
