Our fees Derby probate solicitors McIntosh Fleming & Co charge a fixed fee for getting probate unlike most other solicitors or banks (who charge either by the hour or up to 2 % of the value of the estate). We charge just £725 inclusive of VAT for an estate valued up to £300,000. We consider charging a fixed fee is the fair way as you know what it costs from the outset and a fixed fee is usually cheaper. Solicitors charging an hourly rate will always find “unexpected work” necessary whatever the original estimate. Charging a percentage of the estate is completely arbitrary as the size of the estate does not necessarily mean there is more work to do. So if you want great value at a guaranteed price what are you waiting for – call us now free on (0800) 1712215 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
