Yes it does. There is also a growing trend to decide the fee not on basis of the estate size but on hours and quality of work. I wish you the best. I trust the answer has been helpful. kindly let me know.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
to be clear I can take the personal representative commission on the gross value of the estate and not the net value of the estate
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 1 year ago.

That is correct but subject to approval. It is not automatic and done on a case by case basis. Gross receipts are a common basis for commission calculation. Happy holidays. Kindly rate me positively.
