Frequently Asked Questions

Should you have any questions related to our services, how probate works, our plans, pricing etc. please contact us for more infomation.
What happens once I’ve bought my plan?
We will send you a membership pack with a certificate of entitlement about your plan along with a draft will naming the appointed probate solicitors as executors and trustees. Once your will is signed and witnessed, everything is in place.
Can I choose my own executor?
Unfortunately not. We appoint one of our affiliate solicitors to carry out the work so that we can ensure the process is managed to the highest of standards.
What happens when I die?
One phone call is all it takes for probate to be taken care of. The membership pack you received contains all our contact details so when the time comes, your family simply contacts us and gives us your plan number. The solicitors firm will then take care of all the arrangements.
Can I take out a plan for someone else?
Yes. You can take out a probate plan for another person. We can arrange for all correspondence to be sent to you.
What if I change my mind?
If you change your mind after organising a prepaid probate plan, you are able to cancel it within 14 days and we will refund payment in full. For details of cancellation terms after 30 days please see the enclosed Terms and Conditions. On the other hand, if you invest your money in the stock market, there is a real risk to your capital almost constantly. If your investments perform badly, you could lose even more than you put in.
What if I need to update my Will?
If you need to change or update your will, please let us know as soon as possible so we can assist you with the professional re-drafting of your Will. If your Will is being updated by another provider, it is important that you let us know so we can update our records.

Cost Comparisons

Our fees for obtaining a grant of probate and administering your estate are tailored specifically to your circumstances. They are fixed at the outset and inclusive of VAT meaning that future price increases will not affect you.
Many probate specialists, banks and solicitors, charge an hourly rate of anywhere in between £150 - £300. Others charge a percentage of the value of your estate.

Some probate specialists charge both an hourly rate and a percentage. This means that even a relatively straightforward estate could incur substantial fees.

Most banks offer probate and estate administration services. However, these are usually far more expensive than using one of our solicitors.

Take a look at what you could be charged:

Firm Cost of administering a £270,000 estate
Barclays £13,395.00
HSBC £6,874.00
Lloyds/HBOS £10,800.00
NatWest / RBS £12,220.00
