Probate solicitor fees can be variable, leading to confusion over what has been charged and why when the estate accounts are finished. Whether you're currently involved in a probate case, or you've been involved in one in the past, you may have been overcharged for services, and you may be entitled to a portion of your payment back as a refund. Here's how it works:

A former client of BPS Law LLP approached us after receiving only around £5000 of a £13,000 inheritance thanks to the overcharging of legal fees. Following our investigation into the costs charged, we found that the success fee charged was 123% of base costs, a significant amount over the maximum allowed with current legislation. After several months, we were able to settle the case and provide our client with a £2300 refund, plus payment of all legal fees.
How much do solicitors charge for probate?
Probate fees can greatly vary depending on the money and legal complications involved in a case. However, these costs should always be up-front and fair, and you should never be charged an unreasonable amount for services.
How do I know if I'm being overcharged?
Probate charges in particular can be a mystery because most people do not really have any idea what the work involves. Part of our service is to help set things right, using our expert skills to identify overcharging whether you have one bill or twenty.
What happens if I've been overcharged?
If we find that you've likely been overcharged for services, you can choose to have us represent you in legal proceedings to receive a refund for fees you should not have paid.
