Administration of Estates
It is extremely difficult to give you an exact idea of the likely cost of dealing with the administration of an estate as the total cost will depend on a number of variables.
Some examples of possible cost scenarios are set out here. As a very rough guide, we would generally estimate that the fees for obtaining a grant of probate or letters of administration and winding up the estate would be from 2% to 3% of the gross value of the assets in the estate. But this is only a guide and will be less accurate as an estimate in the cases of both very small and very large estates, where the costs are likely to fall above or below this percentage range as reflecting the time spent.
