NHS workers – did you miss our FREE Wills offer during lockdown?

Email us at info@nightingalelaw.co.uk with your NHS email address quoting FREE NHS Will and we will see how we may be able to help you.

If your requirements are simple we may still be able to offer you a free Will through our Online Wills tool.  However, many Wills are complex, so let’s discuss your requirements first so we can offer you the right service.

 

Funeral Planning

Prices can range significantly depending upon your requirements.

Pre-paid funeral plans from approximately £2,900

 

Estate Administration

Our specialists will take the time to speak with you and learn about your requirements. We will ask questions like ‘Is there a Will?’, ‘Does the estate include property?’ and ‘Is there a surviving spouse?’. These questions will help provide you with a clear quote based on the composition of the estate.

Our Estate Administration prices start from £2,200 and based on previous estates administered, the average price for our service is as follows:

 

number (1)  Standard

Inheritance Tax return to HMRC completed, but no tax to pay

Average – £2,414

 

 

number (2)

Intermediate

Complex Inheritance Tax return to HMRC completed, but no tax to pay.

Average – £4,215

 

 

number (3)

Complex

Estate is subject to Inheritance Tax and necessary paperwork is completed.

Average – £5,414

 

Please note, these figures are based on averages only, and we will provide you with a bespoke quote at the appropriate time based on the complexity of the estate administration and legal work involved. All Estate Administration figures quoted are exclusive of VAT.

In addition to the costs for the work we will carry out, it is typically necessary to incur third party costs as part of the estate administration process. Each estate is different but these third party costs could include:

•   Bank transfer charges
•   Specialist property insurance for 12 months
•   Postal redirection
•   Certainty Will search
•   Property valuation
•   Legal Advertising (know as section 27 Trustee Act 1925 cover)

 

Whilst the cost of these third party charges will vary on a case by case basis, the average cost of these is £687.06*.

(*This figure is based on an estate containing a single property requiring insurance, passing to two beneficiaries).

In addition to costs set out above, in order to obtain a Grant of Probate it is necessary to incur a charge set by the Probate Registry. This charge is currently £155 per application by a legal services provider but the government have stated that the fees are to be changed in the near future.

Please contact us to discuss what is and what is not included within your fixed fee.

Indicative pricing

The quote we provide you will be based on the information you have given us.  The quote is valid for thirty days, after which we reserve the right to re-quote. Our charges will be calculated based on what we perceive to be the level of work required to fully administer your requirments.  For instance for Estate Administration we do not calculate costs based on a percentage value of the estate, but instead we provide a fixed fee quote. We will provide a quote at the outset based upon the information you provide, but should you subsequently need further services we will advise on the cost of these as required.
