Who would wish to see the value of a deceased friend or loved one’s estate diminish substantially? Sadly, many are forced to stand by and watch this happen, falling foul of the extortionate UK probate fees charged by high street banks, because they are either unaware of the fees involved or make the assumption that they should instruct the deceased’s bank just because they held assets there.

Rip-Off Bank Probate Charges – Sunday Times Exposé
According to a Sunday Times article not so long ago, high street giants Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds Banking Group are taking advantage of this and profiting from the equivalent of up to 4% of the value of an Estate, for little or no effort. In many cases, the work of checking the will, assessing taxes and distributing the Estate amongst the Beneficiaries is outsourced to probate law firms who would charge a lot less if instructed directly.
In some cases of course, the estate will be more complicated than first anticipated and/or any undeclared assets may necessitate further work.
But why cause yourself unnecessary stress when you can take advantage of a Fixed Fee Probate Service and also benefit from the experience of specialist probate legal services? This way, you will secure an agreed Fixed Fee prior to the work commencing and, providing you have checked the small print to ensure that no further fees will be applied, avoid any nasty surprises once completed.
