Terms of Business for Solicitors Practice

The complaints procedure and terms of business, including the fees or the basis on which these will be calculated and an estimate of the likely total fees, for my acting as a solicitor will be set out in the initial Client Care letter to you. For example, currently for a simple single will is £180.00 including VAT. Similarly for two simple mirror Wills prepared at the same time, i.e. each spouse/partner leaving everything to the surviving spouse/partner and after the death of both, to children, the fee is £240.00 including VAT. If you require advice on Inheritance tax or Trusts, the fees will depend upon the complexity of your estate and your requirements.

PLEASE NOTE:

INDEMNITY INSURANCE

Our liability: we carry professional indemnity liability cover of £2 million pounds. We therefore limit the level of our liability to you to £2 million pounds.
