*According to the probate registry, the current processing time is around 8 to 12 weeks (due to a 4 to 6 week delay).

A fixed price with no deposit or hidden fees

We will quote a fixed-price upfront depending on your situation (like if there’s inheritance tax to pay or lots of assets to manage).

There’s no deposit upfront. And in most cases, you can pay out of the estate.
