Pricing Information

We know visitors to law firm websites often want to get an idea of prices (notably absent from most firm’s websites).  So here are our prices for a selected group of transactions.  We cannot give ‘standard’ fee estimates for all our work, because the circumstances and the legal work required are so wide-ranging.  If you want a fee estimate on a matter not dealt with below, just give us a call.

On request we can provide a fee estimate for a more detailed Will.

Note: There are two types of enduring powers of attorney – one relating to property and the other relating to personal care and welfare. The above fee estimate is for completing both.
