What Other Customers Think

"My husband died on Christmas Eve and I was in complete shock. I didn't know what to do. I spoke to Fiona on several occasions and she was really kind and explained what I needed to do next. Eventually I handed the process over to her and used the Supported Probate Service. So glad I did."

 - Shamina B

" I was so grateful for Fiona's help with helping me get probate done. I found the whole probate experience confusing and was struggling due to ongoing grief. Probate was granted quickly and I would highly recommend this service to anyone in the same situation."

 - Mrs Gray 

" I would recommend the Supported Probate Service to anyone who has simply run out of time to complete the necessary paperwork. We did have to pay some Inheritance Tax and we needed to complete the probate application quickly to ensure we hit our ITH payment deadline. All sorted by the LDP team. Very grateful."

 - Mr J Tiamo 

"We used the Supported Probate Service by LDP because we were not confident in doing all the probate paperwork correctly ourselves. Fiona and her team took on some muddled paperwork which we had gathered and she managed to put them in order and complete probate application for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Such a great service."

 - John and Maureen Spencer

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do I Need To Apply For Probate?

If the deceased left assets in their sole name with a total value of more than £5,000 then you will usually need to obtain a Grant of Probate (if there is a will) or Letters of Administration (if no will or no valid will).

When Should I Use A Solicitor?

If there is are any disputes,  if there is a large extended family, a business or foreign property involved, or if there are  insufficient assets to pay all of the debts  or a significant amount of money. Also if there are complex inheritance tax calculations required and substantial inheritance tax to pay.

How Much Does Probate Cost Through A Solicitor?

On average you can expect to pay £5,000 – £6,000 + VAT for an average sized straightforward estate. Solicitors will usually charge an hourly rate typically £150 - £300 per hour plus an additional  fee typically 0.5% to 1.5% of the value of the estate and then there's 20% VAT on top of that.  Because they charge on an hourly basis solicitors have an incentive to make the work last as long as possible. Banks typically charge a percentage of the estate (around 4%).

How Long Does Probate Typically Take?

It can range from 6 - 10 weeks to 12 months and longer, depending on the complexity of the will and estate, for example if there are family disputes and inheritance tax is due etc. The simpler the will and estate, the quicker it is typically to deal with HMRC and get probate granted.

How Difficult Is The Inheritance Tax & Probate Paperwork To Do?

The process is fairly straightforward but there are legally required timelines for submission of Inheritance Tax paperwork to HMRC (Revenue & Customs) before you can apply for Probate. If the value of the deceased's estate is under £325,000 then there is typically no inheritance tax to pay and the paperwork if far simpler to complete. 

Can You Do The Inheritance Tax & Probate Application Paperwork For Me?

Yes, we can take over the whole inheritance tax and probate application paperwork for you at any time - we have a separate fee structure for this.  Whilst the process is fairly straight-forward, it can sometimes be overwhelming due to the time involved and the effects of grief.
