In terms of fees, our understanding is that most lawyers charge upwards of 1-2% of the estate value rather than for specific services such as us, meaning our fixed fees are considerably better value.
We charge separate fees for obtaining probate, arranging title transfers, etc rather than a % of the estate which we believe is much more transparent and fair!
