Our team are often asked whether we can assist with dealing with a client's estate after they die. Clients want to know whether they can instruct us now to deal with their estate on behalf of their executors. Whilst we cannot bind the executors into using our services before you have died, as your local solicitors for probate, we can be appointed to act as your executors in your Will. These appointments are known as the appointment of professional executors. In these cases, a charging clause will be included in your Will which will allow us to charge a reasonable fee for all work carried out, based on what our firm charges at the time that you die. 
Alternatively, you could simply express a wish to your executors that they approach us to deal with your estate at the time they need help. Either way, our Probate Solicitors are happy to assist in whatever way suits you.

How much do Probate Solicitors near me charge? 

The cost of dealing with Probate and the administration of an estate varies depending on the solicitor you choose. At MG Legal, our Probate Solicitors 'near me' currently charge a very reasonable fixed fee of £650.00 plus VAT for dealing with the application for Probate in non-taxable estates worth under the Nil Rate Band threshold of £325,000. If the estate is non-taxable and an application to transfer a pre-deceased spouse's Nil Rate Band is required, we charge £750.00 plus VAT. For any other estates, we charge on an hourly rate basis for the work we do. However, we are always happy to discuss offering a fixed fee, which will depend on what work is required in the specific estate. You can contact our team, below, to discuss your loved one's estate.

Should I use a Probate Solicitor near me? 

The application for Probate can be done by professionals, such as our team of Probate Solicitors, or by a layperson, which is the term used to describe individuals who are non-professionals applying. Whilst either is acceptable, many laypeople feel that dealing with the application themselves- especially after they have just lost their loved one- is too stressful, or indeed, complicated. They therefore decide to instruct an expert Probate Solicitor, such as our team at MG Legal, who can guide them through the process, step-by-step. 

What is the process for instructing Probate Solicitors near me? 

The first step is to contact Probate Solicitors 'near me' by completing the 'Contact Us' form above, or by 'phoning your local office- Garstang 01995 602 129 (PR3 1LN), Longridge 01772 783 314 (PR3 3HT) or Lancaster 01524 581 306 (LA1 1UU).

How do I choose a Probate Solicitor near me? 

There are plenty of factors you should consider when choosing Probate Solicitors 'near me'. Things to consider include: 

The Location 

Are your Probate Solicitors 'near me' conveniently located, so you can arrange to pop into the office when required? This helps when returning documents, signing paperwork, or simply when you need to drop off documents. 

The Cost 

Are the charges being raised by the Probate Solicitors reasonable? The cheapest firms are, sadly, not always the best option. You should look for a firm offering reasonable fees, which fairly reflect the work required. Most firms publish their fees on their website, such as our fees which you can find here, or you can contact your local office, who will be happy to confirm the fees payable. 

The Team 

One of the most important things to consider when you instruct a Probate Solicitor is whether you are happy with the team and the firm.
