I need an estimate on the solicitor cost of probate. Situation as follows: Mother and father deceased. 2 beneficieries son (me) & doughter. Wills were entirely to each other with no additional clauses therefor no will. The estate is as follows: 1 house, 3 bank accounts, no land or other assets, minor liabilities (funeral bill, credit card) no known complications or disputes. Question: what is the minimum and average range of solicitor costs, including the sale of the house for probate of this estate? (ex vat) house already valued at 200,000
Can I assume the 1,500 for house conveyancing is in addition to the 3000 - 4000 for admin of estate?
