Estate administration is everything that happens before and after getting probate. This includes gathering information about assets and debts, submitting the probate application, paying taxes and distributing money to beneficiaries.
At Farewill, we offer both probate and estate administration services. Our probate service is a great, cost-effective option if the estate you’re dealing with is fairly simple. But if things are a little more complicated and you just want to get things sorted as quickly as possible, our full estate administration service may be a better choice for you.

Estate administration solicitors in the UK usually charge 2-4% of the estate’s value when administering an estate, which can end up costing over £20,000.
At Farewill, we always quote a fixed-price upfront for our estate administration costs. And with fees starting at just £1,500, we can help you save money too.
Here’s how our service compares to other estate administration solicitors:
Our low-cost probate service may be cheaper than most, but that doesn’t mean we compromise on quality. Our probate specialists always go out of their way to provide an exceptional experience for our clients, so we were extremely proud to be awarded ‘Client Care Initiative of the Year’ at the Modern Law Awards 2020.
