Our Fees For Acting As Executors

Where we are instructed to act for the Executors of the estate, or are appointed in the Will as the Executors, we charge a fee according to the time we spend in dealing with the matter which includes obtaining instructions, writing letters, preparing documentation, making and receiving telephone calls.  The fee will depend on the hourly fee applied.

Our work involves assessing the value of the Estate by reference to the various assets contained within it, obtaining the Court Order authorising the Executors or Administrators to deal with the estate, preparing the HMRC Inheritance Tax Form and then collecting in and distributing the money and other assets in accordance with the terms of the will or according to entitlement where no valid will exists. 

Routine letters out and routine telephone calls not exceeding 6 minutes duration are charged at £30 per item and letters in are charged at £15 per item.
