We are happy to provide a free initial consultation over the telephone or remotely in order to ascertain the nature of your requirements without any obligation on you to instruct us.
Where possible we will try to provide you with a fixed fee, and give you a full breakdown of your likely disbursements, at the beginning of your instruction. That way you can properly budget for your matter and wont have any nasty surprises later on. Fixed fees are generally available for Standard Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, straightforward Probate Applications, Property Sales or Purchases, or Lease Extension.
Where this is not possible, for instance in more complex Wills or Probate matters, I will aim to give you an estimate which will be based on the time I expect to spend on your matter having regard to my hourly charging rate.
My firm's fees are competitive when compared to other High Street practices, and can be as much as 25% lower.
